The internet is exciting and contains a wealth information and when used appropriately can add value to learning and understanding. There are other aspects which, if not monitored carefully, has the potential to cause harm and have a negative impact on our pupils. As parents, it is our duty to set appropriate boundaries and talk to our children to ensure they use the internet safely.
For further information, please use these sites to help you, as parents, help educate and safeguard your children. Allowing your child free access to the internet, when they are accessing games inappropriate to their age, could be deemed a safeguarding issue. Please do your bit!
