Schools have a statutory duty to protect children in their care and as children are making the use of more technology, it is imperative that you as parents also consider e-safety for your child.
There are policies and procedures in place for e-safety in school, but you can also find some very useful information and advice on other websites such as the Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board.
The NSPCC and O2 have launched a campaign to illustrate how innocent searches online can lead to not so innocent results. This highlights how using parental controls to block or filter content can help keep children safe online and includes information on how to set up parental controls on mobiles and tablets, home computers, search engines and games consoles.
Netware is also good parents' guide to the social networks children and young people use.
Stay up to date and keep your child safe in today's digital world. Remember - do you really know who your child is in contact with, whilst on the internet?
