Tips and Guidance
The best way for parents to understand how to protect, educate and understand what their children are doing online is to take an interest in what they are doing, just as you would offline. Spending time together online as a family is a great way to understand each other's online life. This could be as simple as asking your child to demo an app to you or to challenge them to an online game. Once you have a good understanding, you can then find more out about the apps, sites and games your child is using and make sure they are appropriate and safe.
The NSPCC website has key information and useful support for parents who want to get a conversation started with their child about online safety or is worried
If you have any concerns around your child's online safety and want to discuss them or ask for advice, please contact any of the school's Safeguarding Leads; Sophie Thomas (Online Safety Lead), Helen Colcombe or James Walker on 01527 543187.
