Online safety

Online safety is an on-going priority but never more so than during this unforeseen period where students are likely to spend more time than ever ‘online’. The best way for parents to help is to encourage an open dialogue and discussion such that their children are more aware of the dangers and more likely to share their own concerns. Below are some of the useful links . Parents/carers are encouraged to review and discuss the contents contained within the links below with their children.
