Keeping Safe Online

Keep children safe and happy while online


It is vital that we teach children how to stay safe while online.


Do these Three Key Things to keep children safe online

  1. Check the settings on all devices that your children use see the NSPCC's excellent guide on how to do this
  2. Aim for a balance of activities including time in the day when children have a break from screen time. Harold's Daily Diary has lots of non-screen ideas for younger children.
  3. Talk to your child about safety. Explain that if something they experience online makes them confused or just feels wrong then they need to tell you about it straight away.


Below are links to sites offering resources and guidance about helping children to stay safe whilst working online.
