Online Safety – Advice for Parents

Online safety is a major concern for many parents, especially as our children sometimes seem to be more knowledgeable about computers, phones and other gadgets than we are.

Pupils are taught about online safety at Arena Academy in Personal Development (PD) lessons and encouraged to be careful online, and taught ways to keep safe.  Our internet is restricted, and pupils cannot access inappropriate sites from our PCs, however these restrictions do not apply at home.

Here are some  links and documents  to help you as parents and carers to navigate online safety at home.

Additionally you may find these links useful for monitoring specific elements of your child’s online presence.
