Keeping your children safe online – Information for Parents
This guidance is to support you to keep your children safe online. This is especially important for you in the current situation where children are accessing their learning online and using technology as a form of socialising and communication.
The most important thing you can do is talk to your children about what they do online and how they can stay safe.
You can also help to keep them safe online by having parental controls set up and monitoring what your children are accessing online.
Below are some links to useful resources to help you:
- To ensure that you have parental controls set up on the devices that your children are using,
