More and more children are spending longer periods of time online. In school, students adhere to an online safety policy and website usage is monitored against restricted access protocols to ensure student wellbeing. At home, however, students are vulnerable to the same online threats, without school procedures being available to protect them.
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) works across the UK tackling child sex abuse and providing advice for parents, young people and children about Internet safety and online safety. For more information about how CEOP educates children and provides advice for parents, please see their website: https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
Thinkuknow is an additional e-safety charity which provides tailored advice for children aged 4 – 7, 8 – 10, 11 – 14, or 14+. Their website also gives additional advice for parents and carers on how to safeguard their children against the threats online. For more information, see their website: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/
Pimlico Academy also works in conjunction with Ditto, a free e-safety magazine published once a half term. Parents can download the e-safety magazine from the website, or download for free by clicking the link below.
