Staying Safe Online
Most of us and our children use social media and online apps to stay in touch. Keeping ourselves and our children safe is a challenge and teaching our children to use the Internet safely, and responsibly, can be difficult.
To help you and your children understand online safety, we have put together a simple guide to the ways in which we can all help each other "Stay Safe Online". The guide contains links to useful agencies and support sites and can be downloaded simply by clicking the image.
