On Line safety
It is wonderful that the world is at our fingertips, through the internet. However, children may have the skills to access and navigate websites and apps, but often lack the maturity to fully understand the consequences of their decisions and actions whilst on line. At Much Woolton we try to teach the children about online safety and how to ensure that they are more secure whilst online. Parents have a huge part to play in this too. Limiting and monitoring your child’s online activity, be that through mobile devices (phones, tablets, laptops) or through others (PC’s, games consoles etc) and having open conversations with your children about what they do and who they converse with on line will help.
