Internet Safety

Being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material

Internet users of all ages can access a world of information. Much of it is useful, but it is becoming increasingly easy to access material which could be considered harmful. This includes online gaming sites which promote violence or racism, websites encouraging anorexia, self-harm or suicide and sites containing inappropriate and pornographic images. This session is designed to alert parents to such online content and suggest how access to it can be controlled.
