At SJB we firmly believe that students should be given the opportunity to use the resources available to them responsibly and be supported in doing so. We are committed to helping them understand the dangers they face in an online world and have systems in place to support this.
As parents and carers it is your responsibility to understand their online world and to help them be safe.
- 1. Educate yourselves
- 2. Talk with them and listen to them
- 3. Encourage them to think critically and develop a healthy suspicion of what they see and who they meet online.
- 4. Be a positive role model
- 5. Agree some family ground rules
This video summarises this nicely.
Internet Safety Resources
Stop It Now prevents child sexual abuse by engaging with and supporting adults, families and communities and through research and speaking out. Their booklet The Internet and Children contains tips and jargon explanations.
Childnet International works in partnership with others around the world to help make the internet a great and safe place for children and produced a safety guide for parents and a Guide to Online Gaming.
