Online Safety for Parents

Tips, advice, guides and resources to help keep your child safe online

As a parent or carer you play a key role in helping your child to stay safe online. You don’t need to be an expert on the internet to help keep your child safe online. Our advice and resources are here to support you as you support your child to use the internet safely, responsibility and positively.

As part of our work on Safer Internet Day, schools were asked to talk about online safety with pupils, find out more about what pupils do when they are online and talk about what to do if you are worried about something online.
We were very impressed with all the pupils' mature and thoughtful contributions during these discussions and so we have shared some feedback from these discussions.
If you would like any advice, support or have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
