It is really important that everyone (both children and adults) knows how to stay safe online. Using the Internet sensibly is something that we encourage all children to do during their time at The Downs.
We have a separate site for children, TheDowns.ME that is a great starting point for learning online. Why not set it as your homepage on your computer?
Here are links to some other useful websites where you can learn more about being safe on the Internet.
Children at The Downs regularly use Skoodle as a safe way of learning new ICT skills and communicating with friends. It's great!
Hector, Lee and Kim will help children aged 5-7 to use the Internet safely.
KS2 children can use the cybercafe to explore different forms of technology safely.

The BBC have set up this great site to help you to stay safe online. There are videos, games and interactive activities to try!

This site, from Disney, will help you to stay safe on the Internet.
The children's version of Ask. Very useful.
Use this site to search for pictures. It's much safer than Google Images, but remember that you still need to take care when searching for images online.
