This information is designed to help you stay informed about the online activities of your children. It is easy to think that your child will not be engaging in online activity that may bring them to harm, however many children are drawn into activity unwillingly and unknowingly. It is vital that parents stay well informed and up-to-date with the constant changes in technology that surround them and their children.
There are a great number of resources out there to help parents and carers to support their child to stay safe online. Many of these resources have their own benefits and it is important to make yourself familiar with them all to know where to go for support and advice. You can use the following images below to investigate some of these websites further.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child's online safety or activity please speak to their class teacher, or our Family Support Assistant, Mrs D Foster.
Should you feel your child has been put at risk, or is at risk it is incredibly important that this is reported to the appropriate organisation - either CEOP or directly to the police.
