Online Safety

We have a duty to protect children when they are accessing the internet and need to ensure that they are safe online. The following measures will support with this:

  • Make sure parental controls are set on your home broadband
  • Make sure you know what sites they are visiting and have passwords
  • Make sure that your child uses any devices in sight and / or sound of you so that you are aware of what content they are accessing

Please follow this guidance to ensure your child’s online safety.
