The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. As children move up through the school their  access to various  types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too.

Five Internet Safety Tips for Children:


The Five Cs by The Cheshire Constabulary

Screen Shot 2021 12 12 at 18.31.54


We’re living in a world where we are rapidly becoming more and more reliant on digital technology, having to adapt quickly to the many daily tasks we do. Almost nine out of 10 of us use the internet every day on either smartphones, tablets or mobiles.

We’re not the only ones embracing new technology. It’s not gone unnoticed by the criminal fraternity and organised crime groups, who are also adapting how they operate. Cybercrime now accounts for almost half of all recorded crime. It can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, job or location – it’s probably not a case of ‘if it will happen to you’ but ‘when it will happen to you’.

More than 80 per cent of known cyber attacks can be avoided by following five simple rules – we’ve called them the 5 Cs – which will help you with your online safety and security.

  • Create

Create a strong password.

  • Cover

Regularly update your anti-virus/malware software. 

  • Confidentiality

Do not share personal information or passwords

  • Clicking

Links sent via emails and texts are a common way hackers get malicious software onto people’s devices to steal your identity or your money. Think before you click.

  • Connection

Always check that the website address of the site you are using is correct. 


For further information on the FIVE Cs see the website below:
