HELPING YOU TO KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE
The Importance Of Online-Safety
Online safety is an important part of children’s education in today’s digital world and at Hayesdown First School we take active steps to embed online-safety in our curriculum and children’s learning. We also want to help parents and carers improve their own understanding of online-safety so that they can support their children to use the Internet and digital media in a safe and secure way.

Keeping Children Safe Online
Parents are encouraged to work in partnership with the school to teach children about the importance of e-safety. Children use the Internet to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It is a highly creative place and offers a wealth of opportunity. The technology that children use every day can seem daunting to parents and carers who often worry about the risks children can face online.
Get Safe Online produced a simple checklist you can use to help you protect your child online and decrease the risks they take.
Access the checklist for 6 – 9 year olds here.
