The internet is an exciting and fun place for adults and children to use and explore educationally and socially. The challenge for parents, carers and teachers is to make sure our children are aware and understand how to be safe when using the internet and related technologies.
We have put together some websites and resources for you to look at to help keep your children safe when online.

Specialist search engines for children will help reduce the risk but there is always a risk of unsuitable material being shown when doing an internet search. We recommend any internet searching is closely supervised.
