E-safety Advice

At home, many children are often given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access a wide range of digital material (both good and bad) and bring them into their homes.

Here are some tips to help keep your child safe online:

  • Explore e-safety sites

There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children in our Links section below. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?

  • Facebook & Twitter

These sites have a minimum age limit of 13, our pupils should NOT be using them.

  • Keep your computer in a shared area

Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
