Tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:

  • Keep your computer in a shared area: Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home.
  • Facebook/Twitter/Instagram: Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.

Support on the Internet:

Keeping your children safe online can seem like a daunting task, but there is a lot of information out there to guide you through ways which you can ensure they have a good online experience, without exposing them to the potential dangers. Most e-safety sites have sections for parents and carers, and below are some links to sites created specifically for adults.

As always, if you have any concerns about something which affects your child or someone else at Christ the King School, then please contact us and we will do everything we can to help.
