As we are now living in a digital age, it is becoming more and more important for teachers and parents to keep up to date with the technological advances that are going on around us in order to protect and safeguard our children.
Children and young people are likely to be as good as, if not better than, their parents at using the Internet. However, being good at using technology does not mean they have the life-experience and wisdom to handle all of the situations they can come across.
Children and young people are prone to the same kinds of risks (including spam and scam emails, fraud and identity theft) as everybody else. However, there are also other, more sinister threats that may result from going online, such as inappropriate contact from people who may wish to abuse, exploit or bully them, and exposure to inappropriate material.
If you have any concerns or queries regarding your child's online behaviour, please come and see Mr King or your child’s teacher.
