Parents Online Safety Resources

At the Willows Primary School digital literacy and citizenship is a fundamental part of our online safety curriculum. Our aim is to ensure all children are able to act responsibly and to use the internet in a safe way. The internet can be an amazing learning resource and tool to use both at school and at home but it is important that both parents and children are able to deal with the negative ramifications of a digital world including cyberbulling, digital cheating, digital cheating, desensitisation and the lack of understanding of permanency and replication.

Keeping up to date with the digital world can be a real struggle but parental involvement is really important to keep children safe online. Here are our favourite resources to help with this task:
