The Byron Review - internet safety

On 6 September 2007, the Prime Minister asked Dr Tanya Byron to conduct an independent review looking at the risks to children from exposure to potentially harmful or inappropriate material on the internet and in video games.

The Review is about the needs of children and young people. It is about preserving their right to take the risks that form an inherent part of their development by enabling them to play video games and surf the net in a safe and informed way.

A review of the policy can be found here.


Remember... ALL social media sites that require and store personal information like a phone number, name, date of birth (Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram etc) have a strict over 14 years old rule.



Before you post, message, 'Snap'....would I be happy and willing to put a poster up of this in public??? If you wouldn't...don't do it!


Below are a selection of internet safety sites. They are worth visiting to find out more about internet safety and the safe use of developing technologies.
