E-safety

New resources for you to use:

We have also invested in an e-safety training module to support parents with e-safety . If you would like to complete it...


Just a few simple steps by you can help keep them safe and give young people the awareness to know what to do if they feel uncomfortable about anything they encounter while on the internet.

If you do not wish for your child to be able to access any inappropriate content online, please ensure that their computers, laptops and other devices with internet access are all fitted with parental controls.

You can find free downloadable versions online or you can contact your internet service provider (such as BT, Talk Talk, Sky) for more information.

As a minimum, please set parental controls on your search engines, youtube account and the mobile phone your child uses.  We have attached a document giving you step by step instructions on how to do this below.

One of the most popular search engines in the world is Google. You can visit Google’s informative safety centre for simple step by step guides - www.google.com/familysafety/tools

Please be aware that no filter is 100% accurate. We advise that you talk to your child about the sites they use. Why don’t you discuss:

  • Their favourite online sites
  • What they enjoy most, the fun aspects of being online?
  • What they think can go wrong?
  • How would they react if things got out of control?
  • Let them know that you understand that situations happen online and that seeing ‘adult’ material can make them feel uncomfortable. Make sure they know that you are there to help.
