Cyber Safety/Online Safety

Parent Support/Tips for Online Safety

Safeguarding your child while online is a serious matter.  At Golden Isles Elementary we use technology and the Internet extensively across all areas of the curriculum.  Online safeguarding, known as Online Safety is an area that is constantly evolving.

Online Safety is embedded into our curriculum and students are given the appropriate advice and guidance by staff.  Similarly all students will be fully aware how they can report areas of concern while at school or outside of school.

Parents and Guardians

Parents play the most important role in the development of their children.  At Golden Isles Elementary School, we want to ensure that parents have the skills and knowledge they need to ensure the safety of children outside of the school environment. Technology was different when we were young but the internet has changed everything. We have provided some useful internet (Online Safety) information and links below.
