The internet is an amazing source of information. Children can play, learn, create and connect – opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But how do you keep track of what they’re doing and make sure they’re staying safe?

For information on the risks that come with using the internet, check out this guide by the government for parents and carers on child safety online: Child Safety Online (PDF)

Bullying

 

 

Bullying can take many forms, from teasing and spreading rumors, to pushing someone around and causing physical harm. It often happens in front of other people.

Bullying includes name calling, mocking, kicking, taking or messing around with people’s belongings, writing or drawing offensive graffiti, gossiping, excluding people from groups, and threatening others.

These children and young people may need extra or different help from that given to others. For information about what SEND means, check out the guide below;
