Internet Safety

Do you ever feel that your children know more about online technologies than you do? You're not alone. The Internet and online technologies are an important part of children’s lives at home and school, providing great opportunities for learning, communicating, playing and creating.

As we know, these technologies create huge opportunities for us all; however, they can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, and present challenges to keeping your family safe online.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is the UK’s national centre dedicated to protecting children from harm both online and offline. CEOP’s Thinkuknow education initiative aims to empower children and young people to enjoy online technologies safely.

CEOP have released the 'Parents' and Carers' Guide to the Internet' ‐ a short, entertaining TV‐style programme looking at what it’s like to bring up children in the online world. The programme will help you to:

  • Stay up to date with the technology your children are using;
