Staying Safe Online

The internet is absolutely amazing! We live in a time where we do so many things on line, keep in touch with friends, keep up to date with relatives who live far away, watch catch-up TV and shopping.  However, there are risks that we all need to be aware of to make sure children and young people like you stay safe on-line.

Through this website, we hope to raise awareness of some of the risks, signpost to some excellent resources and give you ideas on how to keep safe.  To learn more, see below and visit the following pages:

You can find links to other useful documents and websites below.

If you are worried about a friend who you think may be at risk of being exploited or bullied on-line, there is help and guidance available from the Samaritans who have produced a guide in partnership with Facebook – Help a Friend in Need.
