Primary School

Is your child safe online?

One of the side effects of lockdown has been the increased use of technology. Most children have really benefited from this when in lockdown but unfortunately sometimes it can go wrong. The misuse of technology that some primary aged children have experienced includes, bullying, fraud and child abuse. Children need to be safe in the online world, just as they would in real life!
The best way of protecting your children is to talk with them about how they use technology, find out about the apps, websites and games they use and make sure they can share any worries they have with you. Both the net-aware and internetmatters.org websites are full of helpful advice.
Children will make mistakes and they will need your support not only to stay safe but to grow and flourish both online and offline.
Below we have listed five useful websites to help support your child staying safe. Please take some time to talk to your children and find out more on the websites below.
