At Junction Farm Primary School we are committed to keeping children safe when using the internet. However, much of children’s internet access occurs outside of school and we ask parents/carers to be supportive, interested and vigilant to their child’s usage.
Some of the main apps children access including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp and Twitter are all restricted to age 13 years or above.
The internet is a fantastic resource which is accessible for everyone, however there is a dark side which we aim to educate children about ways to keep themselves safe. Here you will find a range of websites that are useful in supporting you to support your child when using the internet. Click on the images below for direct links to useful websites and information.
