Online Safety

Online Safety is about educating our children in using technology. It is important that as responsible adults we encourage our children to share we us what they are doing online. Children often have the knowledge to use technology as a matter of course, but do not always have the wisdom to use it appropriately, many adults by contrast have the wisdom but not the knowledge. By talking to children about using technology wisely we can help protect them.

The websites below are designed to help you in protecting your children online (although is not an exhaustive list).
