The safety of children online is a serious matter. The links below give support and advice on how to keep safe online.
Keeping up with children’s use of technology is challenging for many adults and it can be hard to supervise what they are viewing & creating online, who they are chatting to and texting, and what they are downloading. Many children may well have better technical skills than the adult but they still need advice and protection when using the internet.
Remember, if your child is ‘logged in’ and using Woodcroft’s online services, these are safe and monitored.
