Online Safety is a vital part of learning in school. Did you know that by the end of KS2 93% of children go online for around 13 and a half hours a week and nearly 74% play games online for 10 hours+ a week. Therefore, it is extremely important to equip children with the skills needed to keep safe and happy when using technology. This is particularly important due to the recent circumstances surrounding Covid and the increased use of technology in every day life.
Operating within an online space is something most of us simply do subconsciously, but have you ever stopped to consider the potential dangers which exist on the web, especially for our children?
With thousands of apps available at the touch of a button is it hard to ensure you have a good understanding of them all. But as a parent, here are some helpful tips for you to support your child with staying safe online.
