Online safety information
The majority of primary school children regularly use the internet and more and more also have access to mobile phones - digital worlds they can explore without parental guidance or supervision. With this in mind, here are a few websites to support any parents interested in finding out more about e-safety to help their children.
One of the most comprehensive sites for parents is www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/ which includes an interactive area especially for children to play games to learn more about e-safety for themselves.
The Child Online and Exploitation Protection Centre (CEOP) www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/ includes advice about how to make a report if you or your child feels threatened or are bullied whilst online.
For information about how to set parental controls and technological advice, visit the parents page at www.saferinternet.org.uk/
To watch a short animated film about the ‘Digital Universe of Your Children' you can click on this link www.saferinternet.org/digitaluniverse which makes a good starting point to initiate a family chat about safety online.
