Advice for Parents about online safety

Our ICT Co-ordinator (Miss Hepple) has put together the following collection of websites which will support parents to help to keep their children safe whilst online.

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and our current circumstances, it is likely that children are spending a lot more time online. There are huge benefits to being online; to stay connected to family and friends or keeping yourself entertained and engaged with temporary changes. It is important that parents help to keep children safe from different risks online and know where to go to receive support and advice.

Useful websites to access:

UNICEF – Keeping your child safe on-line at home

GOV.UK – Support for parents and carers to keep children safe on-line

NSPCC – Coronavirus advice and support for children, families and parents

Safer Internet – Keeping children happy and safe online during covid-19

Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership – Covid-19 0n-line safety advice for parents
