Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:
- Make sure your child understands they should keep new online friends strictly online. If someone asks to meet them in the real world they must tell you about it. If someone they don’t know asks to be their online friend they must ask you first.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards your child. Parents and children can both report at www.ceop.gov.uk or www.thinkuknow.co.uk
- Visit www.ceop.gov.uk/parents or www.kidsmart.org.uk/parents/ for more information.
- Visit the age-appropriate related sites: 5-7s (Hector’s World), 8-10 (Cybercafe) or watch one of the films on the 11-16s site.
- Useful video resources can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/topics/stay-safe
