Staying Safe on the Internet

The Internet is a place where our students-your daughters-have grown up. It is where they socialise, listen to music, learn new things, share their thoughts and play games. As a parent it may feel impossible to keep up-to-date with what is 'trending' or it can be frightening to imagine what your child might come across online. We appreciate you want to be able to protect them and give them the tools to navigate their way safely through their virtual life.

There is a host of information online, for parents, which can feel overwhelming. Here we have linked practical tips, from online safety professionals, which will help minimise the risks your daughter might face online. This site is updated regularly, so please check back!
