Safer Surfing - Advice for Parents and Carers

As a parent or carer, the internet has opened up a whole new world and you will need to be aware of both the positive and negative influences it brings. Being able to support your child and offer them guidance will help to keep them safe in the virtual world. 

If you have any concerns about anything your child sees online, their online activity and that they may be at risk of harm please report your concerns using the link below:

10 Tips to help children stay safe Online. 
 

1. It’s private... Make sure your page is private
 

2. About me. Never tell anyone anything personal about you, your friends or your family. 
 

3. Don't tell... Keep your passwords private.
 

4. Making friends - Don’t add anyone you don’t know as a friend. 
 

5. Telling the truth - Remember not everyone tells the truth online, so only speak with people you know and trust whilst online.
 

6. Tell someone. If someone contacts you and you don’t like what they have done or said, do not reply to or get involved in their messages. Tell an adult!
 

7. Meeting up. Never arrange to meet someone you have met online and not met in person before. Tell an adult if someone you don't know wants to meet you.

8. Get an App. Add the CEOP app so you can report anything that happens which you think is inappropriate or makes you feel uncomfortable. 
 

9. Once on line it stays online - Remember once you post something, it could be up there forever.
 

10. Ask for help! - Always ask for help if you are worried about anything
 

The NSPCC have lots of guides and videos to help parents and carers to understand online safety and to have conversations with their children about keeping safe. You can get these on the following link
