At National Online Safety, we provide multi-award-winning online safety education for the whole school community. It’s our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that when children go online to learn, communicate or play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide schools all over the world with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.

What are torrent sites?
A torrent site is a website on the internet where visitors can upload, share, and download files. Whilst some torrent sites are legal, others are illegal due to the sharing of copyrighted material such as books, music, and movies. A torrent site allows users to download pieces of a particular file from other users, known as seeders, until the complete file is downloaded.
