Internet Safety

The internet is widely used by children and young people every day and plays a big part in their lives.

At Orchard we recognise that the internet offers our children a great opportunity to learn, develop new skills, to keep in touch with friends and family and to have fun.

 

However, the internet can also pose a threat to children’s safety. It is therefore important for everyone to understand the dangers that may present themselves and to understand how to reduce or prevent them.

 

We need to work together to provide a safe, fun environment for children to develop and grow
