Online Safety

The theme for Safer Internet 2021 is “An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world”.
Below are some useful websites most have free resources to support parents/carers and practitioners in guiding children’s safety online.
* UK Safer Internet has many free resources to support the age 3-7 age group including a video of “digiduck” who believes what he read on the internet and got his homework wrong- it gives advice on how to check facts.
* National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children also has resources for safeguarding children online- did you know that Instagram was the most used platform in child grooming crimes during lockdown April-June 2020?
* Child Exploitation Online Protection Centre also has useful free resources.
* Childnet has useful free resources for parents and children.   Switched On Families and Internet Matters
