Internet safety forms part of the safety strand of the All Wales School Liaison Core Programme. Lessons on internet safety start from LKS2 where our friend Tarian helps children to understand about staying safe with the lesson 'Stay SMART', and continues through primary school and into secondary schools.

Be Share Aware

Research for the NSPCC's Share Aware campaign found:

  • 1 in 5 8-11 year olds who go online have a social network profile.
  • 50% of all 11 and 12 year-olds in the UK use a social networking site.
  • 60% of 14-17 year olds we surveyed last year said they had been asked to send a naked image of themselves online.

The NSPCC have launched a new campaign 'Be Share Aware' which is accompanied by a film called 'Have you seen Alex's Willy?' and aims to help parents teach their children to be safe online.
