As we all spend more time on the internet it can be hard to keep up with the latest guidance for parents on how to keep your child safe online. We hold an online safety workshop for parents each year. Look out for the dates of the next workshop on the school calendar.
Below are some useful resources for you to take a look at when you discuss online safety with your child.
Online Resilience Tool
"The Online Resilience Tool is a practical way to assess young people's online behaviour and help you make a decision about whether that behaviour represents a risk of harm.
Behaviours are organised by age group and divided into 'Not Harmful', 'Potentially Harmful' and 'Harmful'. The majority of behaviours that young people engage in online will fall into the 'Not Harmful' section. There is no way of completely eradicating risk in the online world. In the same way as we cannot completely eradicate it in the offline world, however we can reduce risk through interventions and support which will be discussed at the end of this document."
Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline. You will find lots of advice for parents and carers as well as a range of resources to use with your child. Here are some resources you might find useful:
