Tuesday 7th February was Safer Internet Day. As you know, the majority of children are now using the internet regularly therefore it is very important that they also know how to be safe online.
As parents/guardians, we want our children to enjoy the benefits of the internet for both their learning and wellbeing. However, as parents/guardians, we also have a responsibility to keep our children safe and this certainly has become more challenging on the internet.
I urge you to take time to check out the fantastic resources for parents/guardians which can be found on the Webwise link below. This website offers good advice, information about apps and good talking points to keep the conversations open around internet safety.
Having discussions around being safe on the internet with your children cannot be left to schools alone. We must work together to keep our young people safe when they use the internet.
