Project launched to help children stay safe online

A Wales-wide research project aimed at finding out how children use the internet and digital media is being launched today.

Children's Commissioner for Wales Keith Towler will meet pupils in the Vale of Glamorgan as part of the project launch, which coincides with Safer Internet Day.

Cadoxton Primary School, Ashgrove School, Barry Island Primary School and Ysgol Gyfun Bro Morgannwg are currently taking part in a pilot of the Welsh Government's new digital learning platform, named 'Hwb'.

During the visit, the commissioner and members of Wales' National Council for Digital Learning will find out how pupils stay safe online and whether enough is being done to help them use the internet safely.
