The internet can be a wonderful tool for helping your child with their learning and we encourage our children to make good use of it. However, it can also be a worry for those who want to protect their children from the dangers that it can also present. The following website offers help and advice to parents/carers, outlining the dangers, risks and solutions to many questions and worries you may have. We hope you find it helpful. www. saferinternet.org.uk.
