The Internet can be a wonderful place to learn, shop, play games, and talk to your friends. Unfortunately, there are also many dangers that we need to be aware of when we use it. In order to be safe online, it's important for you and your children to be aware of these dangers.
Many children are confident that they know how to be safe online. However, there are a few reasons children are often more at risk. They may not always think about the consequences of their actions, which can cause them to share too much information about themselves. Children also are sometimes specifically targeted by cyberbullies or predators.
At school, we have a range of ways that we keep children safe online and educate them about the potential risks that they may be taking when using the online world.
If you're a parent or guardian, you can help to keep your kids safe by talking to them about their Internet use, teaching them about online dangers, and learning everything you can about the Internet so you can make informed decisions.
