Parents and Carers have a huge responsibility to make sure technology in the home and any mobile technology that their children use is safe and protects them from any possible dangers or exposure to unsafe images or unsafe adults.
This also includes making sure that children are not playing computer games that are unsuitable for their age.
On this page you will find lots of information as to how you can do this. Please attend any parent information meetings at school about online safety. We will always help you at school with advice or by putting controls/filters on your devices.
Most importantly have rules about technology at home, talk to your children and find out what they are interested in online and try not to punish them if they make a digital mistake. Make sure they know to come to you first with any difficulty.
