Staying Safe Online
We wanted to remind you about the great resources offered by the NSPCC to help you keep your children safe online.
The Share Aware website (https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/share-aware/) has great resources and give the following TEAM tips:
Talk to your child regularly about what they are doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen. You can use our conversation starters to support you when starting these conversations. Explore your child’s online activities with your child. Understand why they like using them and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe. Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games. You can use our Family Agreement template to help you get started. Manage your technology and use the settings available to keep your child safe.
They also developed a website called Net Aware (https://www.net-aware.org.uk/) which allows you to check games, apps and social networks to see if they are age appropriate and safe.
We hope you find this useful!
