E-Safety Workshop for Parents

E-Safety Workshop for Parents

E-Safety Workshop for Parents – Tuesday 17th November 2015

Thank you to all the parents who attended the E-Safety Workshop.  It was great to see such a large turnout.

Keeping our children safe online is extremely important and just by taking a few precautions, we can keep them away from many of the negatives things that can can appear online.

Things parents/carers can do at home to keep children safe:

  • PCs/laptops should be used in communal areas (such as the living room).
  • Parental locks to prevent children accessing adult content (your broadband provider will help to enable this feature if you contact them).
  • Having an open dialogue with your children about how to behave online.
  • Talk to children about not giving their personal details to anyone online.

A key area to be aware of is the content of the games children play; either on their laptops or their PS4/Xbox, etc.
