Keeping Your Child Safe Online

November 09, 2015
Children are using technology and the internet more than ever. Online Safety is embedded in our Computing curriculum and whenever children use online resources at school they are reminded about how to stay safe. However, with children learning, playing and conducting their social lives on the internet, it is also important for them to receive support and guidance at home. Thankfully, plenty of information exists for parents so they can help children remain safe online at all times.

Havering School Improvement Services have recently shared some useful links:
  • » is a portal dedicated to making sure all parents are only a click away from advice, tips and support about online safety for children. The information is divided into age-appropriate sections to help you talk to your child about the issues and technologies they'll come across as they grow up online. From setting your parental controls to teaching your child how to be a good friend online, you'll find a wealth of information so that you can spend less time researching and more time having fun with your family.
  • » is a site for schools and parents. The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. They provide information and resources for parents and those who work with them.
  • » has resources, support and tips for parents of children of all ages and it includes information on what children are doing online and the associated risks.
