Information for Parents and Carers

The internet is a wonderful tool for learning, having fun and being sociable, however it does have its downsides. It is important for us to keep in mind that children as are learning to navigate the world, they tend to be enthusiastic and trusting. The flip side of these wonderful qualities is a tendency to lack caution and the ability to tell when they might be at risk.

Whenever they are online, they are at risk from unsuitable content, accidentally disclosing their personal data, illegal downloads, file sharing, spyware, viruses, inappropriate advances, misinformation and cyber bullying. Although Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity to emphasise the importance of keeping safe online and tackling some of these issues, we hope that you will continue the conversation at home as we strongly believe we need to give our children as many tools as possible to keep themselves safe when using the internet.

Below are a few links and resources to help you talk to your children at home about keeping safe online. There are some activities you can do with your children as well as conversation starters and apps to help you monitor their internet usage. You can also find a handy guide with tips on how to help your children be safe and responsible internet users.




And a couple of links to helpful apps for you to monitor and protect your child when they’re online:
