This page will give you useful information to allow you to ensure that your child is e-safe.
Detailed guidance from CEOP’s “Back to School – Parent’s Letter”
Some UK parents understand their children’s cyber culture, that is, the way in which their children use the Internet and mobile phone to work, play and socialise. The issues of safety, privacy, on-line predators and cyber bullying are sometimes complex, both technically and psychologically and parents can struggle to keep up. At Cockburn, we aim to empower parents to get involved with their children’s online activities, whatever their level of experience, in order to help their children reap the benefits of the Internet and avoid the dangers.
A useful site to go to is the UK Safer Internet Centre site which gives parents/carers practical advice to support keeping students safe at home on the internet.
Many parents/carers are keen to understand the sites, apps and games that are most popular. The NSPCC NetAware site gives reviews and advice specific to these areas.
