Advice for children and young people: online issues and worries
There are lots of great things about social media, apps and games, life wouldn't be the same without them for most of us. But sometimes things can go wrong and you might feel like you are in an unsafe or upsetting situation.
We all want to keep our online experience positive so this area has been created to help you make sense of some of the issues that you might have to deal with. The information pages also include advice on what to do and where to turn for help if you are worried about something online.
Always keep in mind that you have rights and these rights also apply in the digital world!

Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
