 Keeping Children Safe Online 

The Internet is a wonderful resource and we encourage our students to use it as a valuable learning tool. To help them remain safe online we have provided guidance in the form of simple rules to follow and links to useful sites that offer help and support.

We ask parents/carers to be interested and supportive when monitoring their children’s use of the internet. This page has been designed to give you information that will support you in this role.

What is my child doing online through social networking?


When online, children and young people can learn new things, get help with their homework, express themselves creatively and connect with friends and family. There are also risks, but by understanding and talking about the dangers you can help keep your child safe online.

The information provided on this page will provide information and support to ensure that your child stays safe online.
