To support families to keep safe at home, please take a look at the following resources:
'Digital Parenting' - The online safety guide for families is a partnership between Parent Zone and Vodafone. Digital Parenting provides advice from teachers, parents and online safety experts on subjects ranging from Virtual Reality to Snapchat as well as tips from online safety experts, parents and children themselves. There is also an updated guide to setting parental controls on apps and devices, and information on gaming and keeping kids safe while they play. A copy of 'Digital Parenting' can be found in the school office or click the icon to download.
Not only in February but to promote internet safety everyday!
This is a fantastic opportunity to have a conversation with children about using the internet safely, responsibly and positively. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online! This year, the UK Safer Internet Centre is particularly focusing on how consent works in an online context and exploring how young people ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data. These conversation starters are a great way to help you talk about these issues with children.
