Internet Safety

The internet can be a fantastic resource for students.  We have become aware over the past few weeks that a number of our students may not have been using the internet safely.  The dramatic rise in popularity of social networking sites is unavoidable but we strongly urge you to monitor your child’s internet use and be sure he / she is only connecting with real people who they know in person.  We are aware that some students have recently been upset at a spate of teenage deaths conveyed via Facebook which, when investigated, have turned out to be untrue.  Supervising your son/ daughter/s internet use is also an opportunity for you to monitor which sites they are accessing.

If you have any concerns about a website and / or the content being shared you should be able to report your concerns on the site.
