Online Safety

In today's digital age, ensuring internet safety is paramount, especially for our children. At Fairgreen, we understand the crucial role that the internet plays in education and daily life. However, with increased online activities, it's essential to be vigilant about safeguarding our children's online experiences. Internet safety is not just about protecting personal information; it also encompasses critical skills like recognizing cyberbullying, identifying online scams, and promoting responsible digital citizenship. By fostering a culture of internet safety through online safety lessons run at school, guest speakers, assemblies, and our annual celebration of Internet Safety Day, we empower our students to explore the vast online world safely. This page has been created to help us equip parents with the knowledge and resources they need to guide their children through this digital landscape at home. Together, we can create a safer, more secure online environment for our school community.
