E Safety

The following e-safety information has been sent through by our IT team at Northumberland County and is really helpful. 

Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off.

Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations.

Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.

Digital Parenting Magazine is an informative and helpful guide for parents, their aim is, 'to provide you with the latest expert advice so you can help your children develop the life skills and knowledge they need to use the online world safely and with confidence.'
