Safeguarding and Inclusion
With the world becoming ever more digital, it is now more important than ever that we all understand the risks and dangers of entering the online world. It is not just children that are at risk online, but adults can also fall foul to the risks of using the internet.
Over the past few years we have also seen an decrease in children's mental wellbeing relating to social media. We understand that the internet and social media is a huge part of all our lives now and can be very helpful, but we should also be aware of the dangers and how to keep ourselves and our children safe whilst accessing these. Below are some useful links that we hope can help with this.
