The internet has made a huge change to all of our lives, particularly our children’s. Our children have grown up only knowing the internet exists, I'm sure they wonder how we lived without it! For us as parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of and often where our children know much more about it than we do.
With this ever changing world of digital media it is vitally important that we know how to keep our children safe online. Internet Safety is an integral part of our school curriculum where we teach our children about the dangers they may face online. Here at Brookfield Junior School we use the characters from the Childnet website, Kara, Winston and the Smart Crew. However the majority of the dangers they face will come out of school time when they are playing on the computer, are on their mobile phone, on their games console or tablet. As parents/carers it is good to know where to turn to. Below are a number of useful websites that you can access for advice and support, click on the image and it will take you there.
