Internet Safety Help and Advice
This page has been put together to help students find the best help and advice on how to surf the internet safely. It will also remind students of their own responsibilities when using the internet whether they're in school or not.
Below are links to articles and websites that are added every week. The articles and websites are mainly geared towards parents and carers. However, there is no reason why a student cannot look for help and take responsibility for their internet usage. Students could even encourage parents and carers to be safer online.
