E-Safety

Thinkuknow Parents and Carers website - The Thinkuknow Parents and Carers website contains a wealth of information and advice for parents and carers on keeping their children safe online. Parents and carers can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents for advice on topics such as: having a conversation with your child, using parental controls, understanding live streaming and supporting children who have been sexually abused.

The website is divided into three sections:

I need to report an incident – for information and support when something has already happened to a child or young person

I’m concerned about my child – for information and support when there are concerns about a child or young person

I’d like to understand more about keeping my child safe – for preventative information and advice on keeping children safe online
