The internet is an amazing place to help us find a wealth of information on any subject at all. It can be a place to connect with others, to keep up to date with news and views as well as to help us learn. However, it is also a place where as adults we use our judgement to know if what we are being told is true or not. Children can often be more trusting than us and therefore may be more susceptible to being bullied or coerced on line or even hoodwinked into believing someone is not who they really are.
Now that we are all spending more time at home please be sure you have privacy controls set on your home devices which children use and consider limiting screen time. You will find some useful tips for setting controls here and guidance on remote learning for parents here.
Guidance for parents and for children staying safe online is available from the sites below and also here.
