The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.
Children and young people spend increasing amounts of time online and pupils at school now have never known a world without the internet. It is a great way to learn, socialise, explore and have fun, however children do face risks such as cyber bullying or seeing inappropriate content - particularly as websites can now be accessed through mobile phones, laptops, tablets, pcs and games consoles.
