Keeping your child safe online
The internet is an amazing place with so much to offer and so much a part of our lives.
We want to make sure that, when our children are using the internet, they stay safe just like we would in real life.
At school, we have termly assemblies and termly lessons about online safety but it is something that we are always discussing and talking about with the children. The games, apps and sites are ever changing and, on this page, we will keep you up to date with what you need to know.
www.commonsensemedia.org is a free website which provides guidance about games, apps and films.

#Pledge2Game – New campaign
The Internet Matters team are challenging you to ‘Play Your Children at their Own Game’ this summer! Playing video games with your children is one of the best ways to keep them safe and healthy when they are gaming and we all know that kids love to beat the adults! To support parents, Internet Matters have also created a Gaming Hub, which has fantastic tips on gaming to support families.
Find the advice at: https://www.internetmatters.org/resources/online-gaming-advice/ and #Pledge2Game with your children to help them develop healthy gaming habits this summer holiday!
The UK Safer Internet Centre is a site where you can find online safety tips, advice and resources to help children and young people stay safe online.
