This framework describes the knowledge, understanding and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, how to get support, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it safely. It is structured across eight strands, in each case describing the relevant skills and capabilities expected of young people across different age groups: self-image and identity; online relationships; online reputation; online bullying; managing online information; health, wellbeing and lifestyle; privacy and security; and copyright and ownership (4-18 yrs)
