• Explore e-safety sites - There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
  • Social Media - Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them. http://www.net-aware.org.uk/ has very useful reviews of social media websites/apps from parents, children and developers.                                                                                                                 
  • Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online

 

Here are some very useful sites for parents/carers regarding internet safety.
