During these times, it is really important that we keep our children safe online.
Children have the right to enjoy childhood online, to access safe online spaces and all the opportunities that a connected world can bring to them, appropriate to their age and stage.
It is crucial that we teach our children to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and other's online behaviour and develop strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online.
I have included links to online resources and links to support you educating your child about online safety.
