Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore, learn and have fun. But children do also face risks like cyberbullying or seeing content that's inappropriate. At GFS we take internet safety very seriously. All students receive education on how to use the internet safely and are required to sign up to the schools acceptable usage policy (see link below).
Whether you're unsure about what happens online or are up to speed with new technology, it's important that you talkto your child about staying safe online.
It may feel daunting, but you don't need to be an expert on the internet. Understanding what children do online and the risks they face will help you keep your child safe online. To find out more about internet safety please use the links below.
