Technologies and their uses are growing at an ever increasing rate, and never before have children had access to it as immediately as they do now. Children are becoming more technologically capable and aware at younger and younger ages, and it's important that they are educated about how to keep safe. With the reliance on technology during lockdown, it has become apparent, now more than ever, that we need to educate and keep our children safe while they are using the internet and the various technologies associated with it.
Parents/ carers must make sure that children are supervised whilst using the Internet to ensure that they are only accessing content that is appropriate to them. It is also advisable that parental controls are enabled on any devices and your Internet provider. Children have received e-safety lessons in school and should be aware of how to keep themselves safe online and what to do if they don't feel safe, or view something inappropriate.
