On-line safety message from the Local Authority
During Covid-19 our Children and Young People may have been spending more time than usual online or on gaming devices.
We understand that it is hard for parents, grandparents, teachers and carers to keep up with the latest games, apps and social media, so we have attached a link to a NSPCC site: http://www.net-aware.org.uk/
On the main screen there is a search box, simply key in the name of the particular game, App or social media and it will give you a summary of what it is, identify any risks and explain how you can take simple steps to make things safer.
It also includes useful information such as:
- Age rating
- An expert view of the risks
- Top tips for usage
- Top tips for staying safe
