The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers and how to act safely when using the internet.
We are therefore delighted to announce that we have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online and have engaged ourselves with the National Online Safety Community. This provides a wealth of teaching opportunities for our pupils about keeping safe online as well as providing you as parents and carers with an interactive online workshop.
The workshop/course can be taken at your own convenience and covers:
· Information about online dangers and the newest platforms
· What online risks to look out for and how to protect your child
Please find below the URL you need to visit to register your account. You will need to complete your details and select “I am a: Parent/Carer” from the dropdown menu:
Once you have registered, you will be able to access the “Online Safety for Parents and Carers’ course and National Online Safety’s Resources (which includes 50+ online platform guides on the latest social media channels and games). This aims to help empower parents with the knowledge to protect their children from the dangers of the internet.
If you have any questions, or trouble accessing the course, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keeping Your Child Safe Online Guides

Below are some guides for parents written by the National Online Safety team that will inform you about the age restrictions, settings and dangers that they may face. Please be vigilant and check all devices that your child/ren use to ensure that you keep them as safe as possible.
