Internet Safety Resources
- 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.
Watch the parents’ and carers’ guide to the internet.
A parents' guide to Facebook.
For parents there are Parental Control/Tools that can be used to limit features of games consoles and mobile phones so that the risks of the technology being misused are reduced.
