Online safety is taken very seriously at Chase Lane, it is an integral part of children's education in today's digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. To further help safeguard children from potential dangers or unsuitable material, we would like to help parents improve their own understanding of the risks children can face online - such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
A simple and effective way to get involved with your children and their lives online is through discussion. Why not use the following conversation starters from www.childnet.com to get the ball rolling?
It’s important to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not help your child, it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. We need to teach our children the skills to keep themselves safe and to build trust.
