The internet can be a fantastic place for children where they can talk to friends, learn and have fun. However, just like in the real world it is important that we are taught how to act safely and responsibly.

In school we follow the SMART rules to help keep us safe online and we encourage the same for home too.

These rules are displayed in our school hall as a reminder about key safety advice, such as keeping personal information private, who we make contact with and where to go if you need help.

The children will be introduced to these SMART rules whilst at school and will have many other opportunities to discuss online safety throughout their time at LCA.

Social networks are very popular but it is important to know that there are appropriate age restrictions set to protect children from content that they may be exposed to. Please see below the age restrictions for some popular social networking sites. We would appreciate you taking the time to discuss with your children the reasons for these restrictions.
