The internet can be a useful tool for communicating, downloading information, researching, shopping, teaching and generally having fun. For most people the internet has become the first port of call for information and a vital part of their everyday life; and for children in particular an excellent tool for homework and chatting to friends!
Because of the prolific use of the internet coupled with the anonymity of internet users, internet safety has become paramount and all internet users need to be aware of the key issues. As with many activities in life, so long as you follow certain guidelines and are aware of the dangers, you should still be able to enjoy safe surfing. Many organisations have set up comprehensive websites which provides guides and rules on internet safety. Below are some of the best guides and information for parents to fully support their students in being safe online.
