The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong. At KSA we take online safety very seriously.
- We all have the right to feel safe all of the time
- We can talk with someone about anything, even if it feels awful or small
It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about online safety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box or Playstation), mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, televisions and many other things. If you or your child are worried or upset about something which has happened on the internet there is help out there. Please look at the useful links and documents below regarding how to keep your child safe whilst using technology and the internet.
