Guidance for Parents and Carers

It is vitally important that we all work together to ensure that children and young people in our care are aware of the potential dangers when going online or using social media and that they are protected from harm.

There is plenty of help and advice available for parents to keep their child safe when they are online using the internet, both at home and when they are using portable devices such as Blackberries and i-phones.
