The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much. You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

It is important that children are kept safe from things online which could upset them or put them at risk. At school we help the children to think about their use of computers and their behaviour online. In lessons, we discuss with them how they can minimise risk.
