Online Safety

Top Tips

Last month we shared a link to the NSPCC website with tips to support families in talking to their children about online safety.  The ThinkuKnow website have developed some home activity packs that would support and follow up these conversations.  The downloadable activity sheets cover different areas of online safety such as cybersecurity and social media. The sheets contain conversation starters, online safety actions and fun family tasks. They also offer links to further information and articles to help you keep your children safe.

 You can find the activity packs here

If you scroll down the page you can also find links to packs to enjoy with older and younger children.  We hope you find them helpful.

Now the children are back in school lots of families may be settling into a new pattern regarding screen time for children on their devices.  The Internet matters website has some useful guides about balancing screen time to ensure children are getting a healthy digital diet. The guides are sorted by age group and they can be found here.

We hope you find them helpful.
