Children learn about internet safety

Lessons in using the internet safely are set to become a compulsory part of the curriculum for primary school children in England from 2011.

They are one element of a new government strategy being unveiled called "Click Clever, Click Safe".

Children will also be encouraged to follow an online "Green Cross Code" and block and report inappropriate content.

Rory Cellan-Jones reports from an internet class at a primary school in Ealing, London.
