The Internet is an invaluable resource for students who use it in a responsible and mature way. It aids learning and communication and should be used to enrich and extend learning activities.
However there are dangers to using the Internet and students need to be aware of these in order to protect themselves.
Cleveland Police are dedicated to promoting safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones. While the internet and the technology used to access it is rapidly evolving, providing exciting new experiences and methods of communicating, it is important that children and parents/carers alike do not forget the risks that are associated with it.
Cleveland Police hope to produce information and provide support on how to stay safe online, all of which can be downloaded here.
