Learn how to keep children safer online, and understand the potential dangers and behavioural warning signs.
Cyberbullying signs are not always obvious, so it's important to be aware of the risk of this type of behaviour.
Online abuse prevention
The internet can be a great place for young people to learn, play and connect – but danger is never far away.
All online devices have built-in parental controls which can help protect children from harmful content.
BE SMART, STAY SAFE ONLINE
The online world is a part of everyday life for children and adults, so understanding how to stay safe is vitally important – as is knowing where to turn if you feel trapped in a situation. We therefore educate, have dedicated staff, and provide resources for our children and employees.
Dangers: Cyberbullying, cybercrime and deception.
Detecting these issues is one thing, knowing how to deal with them is another. A problem or even a potential problem shared is a problem halved, so we encourage children and staff share it with a senior member of staff.
