Children are increasingly using computers and mobile devices, and spend a lot of time online; it can be a great way for them to explore the world around them.  The Internet is an amazing tool that impacts on our daily life so it is vitally important to us at Balksbury Federation that we educate our children to be aware of both the benefits and dangers online.


It may feel daunting to support your child, but you don’t need to be an expert on the Internet. Understanding what children do online and the risks they face will help you keep your child safe. Explore our page for our parent campaign, tips and useful websites to help with ESafety for families.
