ADULT and PARENT INFORMATION
KEEPING SAFE ONLINE IS IMPORTANT TO ALL OUR CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES
KEEPING OUR FAMILIES SAFE
The Internet is an incredibly exciting part of our everyday world. It offers us the opportunity to explore the world from our own home. As with everything, for all the very exciting opportunities this virtual world presents a whole set of new risks.
We need to ensure that our children and young people, and ourselves, know what the dangers can be, and hopefully teach them how to respond to these dangers responsibly and safely. Young people and many adults live in an always-on, social, digital and connected world, and it is the only world they have ever known.
Whilst the Internet brings amazing opportunities for us to learn, create and socialise, it is our duty as adults to help them navigate this online world safely. Children and young people must recognise that every click, every post, every purchase and every photo we upload leaves a digital footprint.
It is important to start the conversations about internet safety at an early age, to help set boundaries together and provide a clear understanding of when it is safe to explore the Internet freely. We need to build resilience with our young people and offer unconditional support to ensure their online world is safe .

Extremism is the vocal or active opposition to our fundamental values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and respect and tolerance for different faiths and beliefs. It is important that whilst we keep ourselves safe online we also are mindful of extremist and radicalisation behaviours.
