Technology and the internet are part of our daily lives. It's almost impossible for our children to avoid coming into contact with the online world. From social media apps to messaging services to online gaming, it's important that we, as trusted adults, help to protect them from harm. But it's just as important that they too know how to respond to online dangers.
National Online Safety (NOS) have created this useful guide for children outlining various online safety do's and don'ts to help empower them to make the right decisions when interacting with the online world.
They have also produced many parent guides to well used apps and games. They are very useful. Please ensure you know what your child is accessing online and what apps they have downloaded on devices. Age limits are put in place for a reason. The online world can be difficult for adults to manage, we must support our children in safe online practices. In school we follow an E-Safety programme of study and we will be participating in Safer Internet Day next week.
