Parents & Carers

Keeping Young People Safe (CEOP)

How safe are your children online? Are you aware of the dangers your children may face when they are online? How much can you do to protect them?

It is clear that children are engaging with technology and particularly gaming and social media technologies at very young ages and we need to ensure that as educators and parents we understand how to ensure they are utilising these technologies safely and responsibly.

Please find below a list of websites that parents/ carers will find useful.
