We all know how important it is to keep our children safe online. The internet is the most amazing tool for learning, but also a very dangerous and disturbing place without safeguards for children. It is important that children have privacy setting enabled on all devices they use at home. Please take a look at this website, which is a fantastic resource to help you with this:
“Children and young people need to be empowered to keep themselves safe…..Children will be children – pushing boundaries and taking risks. At a public swimming pool, we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim”
At Park Street, we think about four main areas of concern where children need to be guided and protected:
- Content – being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material
- Contact – being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users
- Conduct – personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes harm
- Commerce – risks such as online gambling, inappropriate advertising, phishing and or financial scam
If you would like any help or support with these matters, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you need to urgently report any threatening or dangerous sites or online behaviour, please click on the link below which will take you to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection).
