Online Safety

Are your children safe online?

Traditionally in schools, entertainment and social networking sites were banned.  There are often firewalls to prevent unsuitable material getting in to the school system and effective filters that stop young people from accessing information deemed inappropriate by the school.  These measures have been taken to protect both the pupils and the school.

In the home, in internet cafes and at friends’ houses young people’s online behaviour is supervised, monitored, and filtered differently.  What do you have in place to protect your child(ren)?

What things could your children be doing online that puts them at risk?
