Last month the Government launched a public consultation about the best ways of protecting children online. The internet plays a big role in todayâ€™s society where both adults and children use the internet on a daily basis. Children have such easy access to websites that can be harmful for them. By completing this consultation form, the government can consider taking the necessary steps to ensure children are protected from harmful content online.
It is important to get as many people as possible to complete the consultation form to make sure that the Government takes the necessary steps to protect children from pornography and other harmful content online. We have a duty of care for our children and want them to be safe and protected in all aspects of life. It would be impossible for each individual to watch over their child when they are online, especially due to the fact that the internet can be accessed virtually anywhere! If the government takes the necessary measures, parents can have a degree of control over what their children access when online.
The consultation closes on Thursday 6th September 2012.
The summary of findings from the consultation will be published at a later date and will feed into discussion between the Department for Education and UKCCIS (United Kingdom Council for Child Internet Safety). Please ensure you fill it out before the date and make your voice heard.
