What support is there to help keep my child safe online?

The extent to which lives are lived online in today's day and age can be overwhelming. The sheer number of apps, websites and online resources available can be a frightening thought when keeping our children safe. 

In our fortnightly Parental Bulletin, there will be reference to a contemporary online safety aspect for parents and carers to note. The following websites and guides provide clear and powerful information about how you as parents and carers can be part of our holistic culture to support and safeguard our children:

  • The NSPCC has a very informative Safeguarding section with numerous guides dealing with a range of issues. You can access their advice here.
