As the world in which we live becomes more and more connected, children have increasing access to resources and online activities. It is therefore of paramount importance that we support children in making informed and educated decisions about the content that they access and the time that they spend online, and that we support you, as parents in ensuring access outside school is both safe and secure.
This page will give you access to resources and links to webpages that are designed to help you ensure that your children's digital world is a safe one.
