The internet has become an integral part of children’s lives, enabling them to find things out, talk to their friends and access information from around the world. It is such a wonderful tool, but there are also risks if not used appropriately. In school, we follow the Education for a Connected World Framework to teach children about online safety. The contents of the framework are taught explicitly through computing lessons, PHSE and assemblies.
There are lots of great resources out there to support parents too! Here are links to some of our favourites.
