'In 2020, nearly all children aged 5-15 went online. Laptops, tablets and mobiles were the most used devices for going online, used by seven in ten of these children.' (From: Ofcom - Children and parents: media use and attitudes report 2020/21)
The internet can be a great resource, which we we use to aid children's learning in school. However, it can pose risks to users when not used responsibly and safely. With greater internet access for children make sure you know what your children are going on, make sure you know how to reduce the risk of children being exposed to harmful content and how they can stay safe. Make sure you keep yourself safe online as well.
