Internet Safety for Parents and Children

The internet is a very important part of most children's lives, giving them access to a vast amount of useful, exciting and important information and games, including those that we have put in the learning zone. However, it also has some dangers and this page is designed for parents and children to give guidance on how to get the best out of children's online access.

Be Smart!

Childnet gives 5 top tips to staying safe online:

  • Safe Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.
  • Meet Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
  • Accepting Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
  • Reliable Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.
  • Tell Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
