Online Safety

Online Safety - learn about staying safe online


The Internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people to explore, where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong.

The information and advice on this page is available in a variety of formats to appeal to young children/teenagers, parents/carers and teachers/professionals alike to help them keep up to date with the ever changing 'online' environment.


On this page there are informational videos, downloadable documents and, further down this page, many external web links, covering a multitude of online safety issues and situations from many organisations and public service providers. 


If a child or young person you know is worried or upset about something which has happened on the Internet there is help out there.
