Online Safety

“Together we can keep every child safe online” - NSPCC


It is really important to keep the lines of communication open between you and your child. There are four easy ways to ensure you can support your child

1) Be proactive - start conversations, engage in learning about online safety

2) Use stories from the media to start a conversation 

3) Conversations don’t need to be face to face - talk in the car, when out for a walk

4) Engage the family in dinner table conversations about online safety 

Age appropriate advice for technology and online systems

Play Like Share - Are your kids safe online?

Play Like Share follows the adventures of Alfie, Ellie and Sam as they form a band and enter their school’s Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but ‘cool’ Popcorn Wizards as they go. The three friends learn that while the internet can help, they need to use it wisely and safely.

The aim of the films is to help 8-10 year olds learn how to stay safe online. In particular, the films teach them to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressurising and threatening behaviour by people they might meet online, and develops their confidence to respond safely and get help.
