 Online Safety

Online Safety is an integral part of children’s education.  At Linden, we want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

It's important to remember that the legal age to have an account on most social media - Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Snapchat - is 13 years old. WhatsApp is 16 years old
