At St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School we take the safety of the children very seriously, that also includes their safety on the Internet.
The Internet can be a wonderful resource for children. They can use it to research homework, communicate with one another and play interactive games. Once children are old enough to type in a few letters on the keyboard they can literally access the world.
Children are becoming increasingly computer literate, so it is essential that parents are fully aware of the pros and cons of their child using the Internet.
