KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE IN EDUCATION
ONLINE SAFETY INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
Our children are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology. While we feel that the use of technology is mostly a positive aspect of modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated.
We understand that much of our children’s use of the internet will occur at home.
