At St. Francis de Sales, we are committed to keeping children safe online. In school, we can control, filter and monitor internet usage through supervision and software. We know that at home, an ever-increasing number of children have unsupervised access to the internet, something which naturally increases with age through to adulthood.
Privacy settings are important, knowing/understanding the risks is important and following age guidelines is important. However, according to the NSPCC, talking to your child – openly, and regularly – is the best way to help keep them safe online. We highly recommend reading this document for expert advice.
