Online Safety

Online safety

The internet is a brilliant platform for children to learn and have fun and within our learning at St Giles' and we encourage the children to use it regularly and build on their skills.


Technology has become such a normal part of day-to-day life, however making sure your child has a healthy balance between the online and real worlds can be difficult.


There are risks online, just like in the real world, therefore it is important to understand what children are doing online so that you can guide them. Taking risks is a normal part of growing up, but in the online world this can have long-term effects. It is important to create a balance between allowing your child to experiment and develop their independence, and making sure they are aware of what can go wrong and how to deal with it.


This page has some tips and ideas to support you helping your child manage their online behaviour and links where you can get more advice if you are worried or would like to know more.
