Online Safety

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

The ThinkuKnow website is really helpful and aims to make online parenting simple and offers many practical tips and simple guidance.

In school the children are explicitly taught about online safety, both in computing lessons and in PSHE lessons.

It can be accessed via https://www.net-aware.org.uk/. Given that many such new sites constantly appear, this website can be quite useful to stay up to date and keep children safe.
