At St Mark's CE Primary School - We think SMART!
Using the Internet safely at home
Many Internet Providers offer systems to help you keep your child safe at home, but it can still be too easy for children to access inappropriate material including text, pictures and movies. Parents can set the security levels in their chosen internet browser with this in mind.
Don't stop your child from using the information and games available on the Internet. Instead use simple rules for keeping them safe and make sure they understand them.

Using these rules
Go through these rules with your child and pin them up near to the computer. It is also a good idea to regularly check the Internet sites your child is visiting e.g. by clicking on History and Favourites. Please reassure your child that you want to keep them safe rather than take Internet access away from them.
