The internet provides children and young people with a wealth of opportunities for their entertainment, communication and education. But there are also risks of harm through the deliberate behaviour of others online, and through exposure to inappropriate content.
As you grow up in an increasingly digital world, you need to be aware of the risks that you face online. Everyone can play a part in keeping you safe and the internet industries have a particular responsibility to create tools and information to help.
You will learn about internet safety in school, as it is taught as part of the National Curriculum, and the the Safer Internet Day thats is widely promoted in February each year. In addition, the Government has pressed for progress through the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS).
The school recommends the 'Think U Know' website for further information on keeping you safe online.
