Online safety is serious

Parental engagement with online safety is hugely important. After all, children are more likely to use devices, apps and websites outside of school and at home. It's best to know as much as possible and understand the modern online risks which your child may face. There are a lot of useful resources available to help keep your children safe whilst online. 

Think U know (CEOP) resources are informative and up to date. Please visit the parents and carers area. Follow the link: 

CEOP Parents/Carers area 

The following CEOP links are a must read for all parents and carers: 

Having a conversation with your child

Online grooming. How does it work?

Keeping your under 5s safe online

Sharing pictures of your children online

Gaming: What parents and carers need to know
