In this digital age, where children have devices at their fingertips from a young age and often use them unsupervised, developing the knowledge and strategies to stay safe online is an essential life skill. Education needs to start young and to be delivered regularly throughout their schooling to help them develop the digital resilience needed to cope with online risks and challenges.
Gooseberry Alerts contain practical e-safety tips and information for you to share amongst your school community. We keep on top of the latest e-safety research, trending apps and online risks to enable you to be informed and prepared.
