Internet Safety

At St Mary's we use the SMART acronym to help our children understand how to stay safe. We also use the website link below to teach the children specific ways to do this.

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

The Think U Know site aims to make online parenting simple.

The Digital Parenting Magazine is produced by Vodafone, but offers safety advice in a simple step by step way for all major platforms (Android, IOS, BB) as well as Facebook, Youtube and other social media.  It gives you a chance to think about how your child is using technology and how they can leave a safe digital footprint.
