Online Safety

Top Tips

The government recently published some guidance on supporting famillies to keep chidlren safe online. They recommended this safeguarding software which is free to the first million families to apply and is aimed at helping you to keep your children safe online.

We would also like to remind you about the BBC ‘Own It’ app which we have mentioned before. It can be found here and we would recommend that children download it and use it on all their devices. It can provide support if they receive an unkind message and it is a great way to ensure they are sharing kind and appropriate messages online.

Guide of the Month

This month we have a guide from the National Online Safety Agency to support parents in talking to their children about what they do online. We hope these conversation starters are helpful when you are talking to your children about staying safe online over the summer break. If you would like to download and print it, you can find the document below.
