Online Safety Guide

Children’s use of the internet is becoming more mobile and interactive offering young people more opportunities to interact and meet new people, so it’s never been more important to make sure you are helping your child stay safe in the digital world.

The Digital Matters platform uses free interactive lessons and dynamic storytelling to help teachers engage young people in online safety lessons. Following UKCIS’ Education for a Connected World Framework and created by Internet Matters, Digital Matters covers a range of online safety lesson topics ranging from cyberbullying to fake news to password security and more. It engages children through quiz-style and story-based learning while promoting discussion in the classroom to promote a safer internet.
