E-Safety for Parents

Keeping children safe on-line

The on-line world is busy, with many apps and games emerging, and it can be difficult as parents to know what is out there and what children are accessing.

Social media platforms are constantly changing and evolving - new ones arise, older ones go out of favour with young people.

At JKHS we emphasise the importance of good, all-round on-line safety.  This forms part of our work directly with students in lessons and tutor time.  We also want to help parents and carers.  It's a busy, confusing and daunting world on the internet - how can you help ensure your son or daughter in using it safely and responsibly?

Useful links

There are plenty of good resources out there for parents. Two in particular are:

Childnet International - this is a good starting point.

There is also sensible advice on this site:

Think u know

You can also approach CEOPS (Child Exploitation and On-Line protection command) via the think u know site to report on-line abuse directly. You can go directly to the CEOPS website via this link: CEOPS

There are helpful guides for parents available at National Online Safety.

If you have any concerns about on-line safety, use the websites above, or contact us at the school.  If you think your son or daughter's safety is at risk in the evening or weekend, report it, either to CEOPS using the link above, or to the police. You can also report unsafe or abusive content direct to social media platforms, such as FaceBook or Twitter.
