Online Safety for Parents

The Internet is a wonderful tool which offers opportunities to learn, research, play, have fun and connect with others.  However, whilst there are huge benefits to being online, we know that many parents feel concerned about the activities and content their children are accessing.

Below, you will find a number of links to websites that offer information and resources to help parents / carers to educate their children how to use it safely and positively, keep their children safe from possible risks online and helps them to know where to go to get support and advice.
