Safer Internet Day

CyberSafeIreland has released a short video for parents on Internet Safety Day 2017

Please watch this very informative video clip.

Wednesday 8th February was safer internet day.  Research shows that a high percentage of pupils at primary school have experienced cyber bullying.  Children do not have unsupervised access of the internet at school, nor are they allowed to use or bring smart phones etc to school.  Therefore, as parents, it is extremely important that you monitor your child’s activity on-line.  You need to know what social media and other sites your child is a member of and monitor their posts.  If their account is password protected you must have access to their password.  This should be a condition of them having a smart device and having internet access.
