In this modern world, online security is always on the minds of parents when their children are surfing the web.
But pupils at Cavalry Primary School, March, were taught how to be safe using the internet when a pilot scheme rolled into the school on Tuesday.
Key Stage Two children were shown how to use chatrooms safely as part of a scheme run by St Ives-based company Engage Live.
The firm's founder, David Casey, said: "The children are sent a series of messages on their computers and they are identified as unsafe.

"Instead of someone showing them what is dangerous, the children actually have to make the decisions on what is safe, or not, themselves."
Mr Casey spent 30 years with Cambridgeshire police, including about six months stationed at March, and decided to pilot the programme after his work in the force, which included his work in schools.
