The use of technology has now become an integral part of everyday life and provides great opportunity for teaching and learning, both in school and at home. It is therefore important that we understand how to keep children safe online, and that school and parents work together to ensure children use technology in a safe and secure way.
The National Online Safety website provides a wide range of information regarding online safety, particularly at home. The service offers parents the opportunity to participate in online courses and webinars to enhance their own understanding of online safety.
It provides parents with the tools to support their children in using technology safely, as well as providing detailed guides relating to specific websites, games and apps often used by children. The guides explain the dangers and ideas for safe use, alongside tips on what to do when faced with potential harm.
