Internet Matters Critical Thinking Guide for parents

 

 

With Safer Internet Day occurring tomorrow please see the materials provided below that are age appropriate (4 – 19) and include activities parents can do with their children to make them think about safe, trustworthy internet use. The resources are all downloadable, if you are able to send out to parent that would be fantastic and hopefully of use to them whilst home schooling.

Online safety in Lockdown

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

The last year has been anything but normal and it’s been a challenging time for lots of families. Over the next few months we are all going to be spending more time at home and on the internet. The NSPCC have developed a Lockdown Hub to help you find the latest advice on popular apps and tips to help keep children safe online during lockdown and beyond - Online safety in lockdown (net-aware.org.uk).

 

 The New Year is also a great time for your family to create some new rules around staying safe online – especially if your child got a new device over the festive period. There are lots of benefits to spending time online but it’s important to set boundaries about what they can do and how much screen time is appropriate every day. Arrange a time to sit down together soon and agree some rules using the NSPCC's Family Agreement template - Online safety resources.

 This month the NSPCC have also updated their TikTok review (TikTok: A guide for parents) to include information on the latest features added to Family Safety Mode, and published new advice on how to use parental controls on gaming devices - Parental controls advice

 

 It is a good idea to check online safety websites on a regular basis as the organisations who run them are adding new information and updates all the time. Online predators are aware that young people are spending more time online during lockdown and they know how the apps and websites work.
