Online Safety

There are lots of different terms used when talking about staying safe on-line; e-safety, on-line safety and digital safety are just a few. Addressing safety issues on the internet and in the digital world is a fast changing environment and presents lots of challenges for parents. Some of the issues that can arise are:

  • Online bullying
  • Sharing or viewing age inappropriate content
  • Gaming
  • Over sharing personal information
  • Grooming and exploitation

Parents play a big role in keeping their children safe. You don’t have to be an expert to keep your child safe on-line, there is lots of information and support available to help parents teach their children how to engage with the digital world safely and responsibly.
