Online Safety

The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But how do you keep track of what they do on-line?  How do you keep your child safe?

 

The NSPCC has teamed up with O2 and you can call them for help.

Help-line phone: 0808 800 5002

 

High Schools tell us that issues that start on social media can quickly become everyday issues at school. It is happening more and more every year.
