Keeping Safe Online - Advice and Support for Parents

Potential online gaming safety Issues

As a response to parent voice we subscribe to an organisation called National Online Safety.  They produce guides which we have signposted to parents at the parent forums which helps you understand the online world and keeping your child safe.  If you have any worries about your child’s online activities please contact the safeguarding team who will be able to signpost you to help.  We remain committed to teaching about online safety through the curriculum in Computer Science, Tutor time, RSHE and wherever there are opportunities in the curriculum.

When children go online, they are exposed to potential online risks such as cyberbullyingmisinformation, or being contacted by strangers. These risks are just as prevalent in the online gaming world, so it is vital you know how to protect your children from them.

Gaming consoles not only allow your children to play games, but they also support other online platforms and apps such as social networks and video/music streaming apps. These can grant your children access to inappropriate content and other risks.
