The thinkuknow website has just been updated with plenty of essential information for parents and carers regarding keeping your children safe online.
The Thinkuknow website is proud to announce that a version of their new website for parents and carers is now live at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents. The new site offers a completely refreshed suite of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety.
The site is one commonly used in school and was recommended in our recent eSafety parent consultation evening held this term.
Cybercrime: Preventing young people from getting involved
The National Crime Agency (NCA) has launched a public awareness campaign to highlight the increasing number of young people engaging in cybercrime.
The #CyberChoices campaign targets parents of 12-15 year olds who may be involved in hacking or other kinds of online crime without their parents' knowledge. The campaign, also aimed at professionals who work with children and young people, highlights the range of criminal activities that children may be involved in, how to spot signs of potential problems, what the consequences could be and importantly, signposts better ways for young people to use their technical skills.
