Internet safety

Internet safety

The internet and technology plays a big part of our lives today and it is important that our young people are supported to use both of these in a healthy and safe way. In addition to learning about internet safety in school, we recommend that parents and guardians have regular, open conversations with their children to effectively support them online.

Below is a collection of resources to support parents and guardians.

  • Parents Guide to a Better Internet:This booklet will help parents to help their children have a positive experience when they are online. It provides information, advice and conversation starters about the benefits and risks they need to be aware of when using the internet. Topics explored in the guide include cyberbullying, screen time, sexting, social media and online pornography.
  • How to deal with cyberbullying: This one page checklist guides details the five steps children and teens can take to deal with cyberbullying.
  • The #TalkListenLearn campaign has a range of free resources and advice to support families. It includes a parent toolkit, a topic generation and a collection of videos.
  • Talking Points has been created to help parents approach the conversation in a way that will encourage their child or teen to open up about their life online.
  • How to manage your online reputation: Help your child make the most of their time online with this useful checklist for managing their digital footprint.
