Technology can be a fantastic resource, but it is also a source of huge confusion and worry for parents. Here are some of the top sites giving suggestions for the sensible use of technology for you and your children.
We will also add sensible updates about items that are in the news, or causing parents concern. You can also go online and register for # WAKE UP WEDNESDAY, with the National Online Safety site for regular trustworthy updates of your own.
Our links are updated annually (October 2020), but our safety guides are added on a regular basis.
We will often add advice posters that have a PEGI rating that is above the primary school age range, e.g. 12+. This DOES NOT mean that we endorse our children accessing these sites and games, but acknowledges that some children talk about these sites and games, and we believe that parents would wish to know the real dangers of allowing their children to use them or be in the room when older siblings are using them.
It is also useful for our parents to know that these games, apps and sites are NOT INTENDED for primary age children, and be able to check the details we have.
