Keeping Safe Online

The Internet is amazing! We can use it to help us learn and to play games. We can use it to keep in touch with our friends and family by email, instant messaging and social media. We can download the latest chart hits, stream movies and TV shows and watch live broadcasts from across the world. The Internet has become such a useful tool that it is difficult to imagine how we ever lived without it!

As with all tools, it is important that we know how to use it safely and understand the dangers we face when we don't use it responsibly. On this page, you will find a number of very helpful links to help both children and parents ensure that we always stay safe online.
