Keeping Safe Online

The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect – opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. At Scott Lower School we take internet safety very seriously.  We work hard to educate children how to keep safe when online.

But how do you keep track of what they’re doing and make sure they’re staying safe?

Whether you’re an online expert or you’re not sure where to start the NSPCC has 4 key tips help you:

    • explore the online world together
    • talk to your child about staying safe online
    • manage the software and tools your family use
    • agree rules about what’s OK and what’s not
