Dear parents and carers,
At the moment lots of us are spending more time online, including our young people. Whilst we completely understand this, we would like to make sure that we are supporting you in trying to keep them as safe as possible. Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline. They have created the attached help sheet for parents, they have also created activities for children and parents to do to raise awareness and think carefully about online activity. The link to these activities is here:
I hope that this helps you to support your child to be safe online. If you need any further support, please get in touch.
