Children at Farnborough Road use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'online safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of information and material. Children need to know how to use the internet safely to keep themselves safe at all times.
A Family Approach
Many families find that planning together how to use the internet is a great way to keep everyone safe whilst allowing the enjoyment of online activity to continue.
A family agreement is a great way to start a conversation as a whole family about how the internet should be used safely and responsibly when online at home, at school or at a friend's house.
To support parents in creating a family agreement Childnet International have put together some free advice and a helpful family agreement template for families to use as a starting point.
Please find below two documents to help you create your own family agreement
