At Haywards Farm School, we understand the importance of educating our pupils on how to stay safe online. Due to many of our children's vulnerabilities and SEN, we must all be even more vigilant to protecting their safety and welfare. 

Young people have been born into the ‘digital age’. They use computers, mobile phones, video games consoles etc. as part of their everyday lives. They often seem ‘expert’ compared to parents, but young people do not have the life experience of adults and need your support. You can provide this by talking to your child about what they are doing. 

To continue to support their development and knowledge of online safety outside of school, we have provided a range of resources below for you to use to start conversations regarding online use, promote online safety at home, and guidance on new and upcoming apps for parents and carers.
