E-Safety

The world is a much smaller place thanks to the use of the internet and social media such as Facebook and Instagram. Children, even in primary schools, are accessing these apps, despite the legal age for having an account being 13.

We want to help you educate your child about the dangers of these sites as well as the positive they get from them. It is important children understand that although the person they are talking to online says they are an 11 year old girl interested in Little Mix and the Kardashians, they could just as easily be a predator ready to exploit your child. The information below is not intended to frighten you, it is to help you make sure your child is safe online.
