Staying Safe online
 
As technology continues to develop quickly it is important to ensure that you have safeguards in place when your child is using devices that allow them to access the internet. This week we are highlighting a couple of helpful resources.
 
Think U Know:
 
This is a fantastic website with age appropriate sections for children as well as a brilliant guide for parents. It has a wealth of information alongside games/clips to help your child to understand both the benefits and drawbacks of the internet. Simply google ThinkUKnow to find the site.
 
Kidsrex:
 
Kidsrex is a child friendly search engine which filters out most of those websites that you would not like your child to come across when searching. Whilst no search engine can ever guarantee it is 100% free of inappropriate content this is certainly a lot more robust than the search engines that are usually used.
