Safeguarding is always a priority.
Children are constantly being reminded about keeping themselves safe when they are online - this may be on a computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone are any other internet enabled device. The internet is wonderful, for finding things out, keeping in touch with friends and so on, but everyone has to be aware of the potential dangers.
In school our systems are filtered, using the North Lincolnshire Council system and children are always supervised. They know that if something worries them they need to tell an adult, who will know how to deal with it.
Parents will find these websites useful for advice and guidance. Please remember to ask us if you are not certain about something - the internet world is changing all the time, especially regarding social media sites.
This Parent Zone site gives up to date advice on:
