Online Safety

Online Safety

We know how difficult it can be to find the time when you are a busy parent and also just how daunting it can be to try and work out if the safety information you've found online is up-to-date.

That is why we are signposting you to the Internet Matters website.

Internet Matters is a portal dedicated to making sure all parents are only a click away from advice, tips and support about online safety for children. The information is divided into age-appropriate sections to help you talk to your child about the issues and technologies they will come across as they grow up online. From setting your parental controls to teaching your child how to be a good friend online, you will find a wealth of information that is simple and accessible

Below are three online safety guidance sheets which are pitched at either 0 – 5 years, 6 – 10 years or 11-13 years. We think they are really helpful and if you want to find out more or watch any of the information videos, then go the Internet Matters website (see address below) and have a browse. The age-related guidance is at the bottom of the home page
