Children are taught how to stay safe online as part of our computing curriculum. It is also essential for parents to be fully informed and have strategies in place to ensure their children's cyber safety.
Top Tips for Parents
- Check that the apps, games and films children are watching/playing are appropriate for their age.
- Make sure children only make friends with people online that they know in real life.
- Check privacy settings on all devices.
- Have an open discussion with your child so they are comfortable telling you if things go wrong.
