E-safety at home during school closures.
CEOP/ThinkUKnow have released their first set of materials during school closures in a bid to keep our children safe online during this difficult time. You can download these activities below or find them directly from the link also provided below. These resources are scheduled to be updated every two weeks. It would be great for us to see any e-safety work going on at home so why not send any activities to your class teachers on FreeFlow.

We do appreciate however that sometimes what we teach does not always make its way home. Our children are aware of and use a variety of apps which could pose potential risks. The links below show where you, as parents/carers, can get extra information should you like to find out how you can ensure your child's safety online while at home.
Safer Internet Day
Use the following resources to remind your children about Safer Internet Day
To our children, online life is real life. And, just like in real life, kids need help to stay safe online.
Share Aware is an NSPCC and O2 campaign to help parents have regular and informed conversations with their child about online safety. We're aiming to get every family in the UK chatting about their kids' online world, just like they would about their day at school.
We tell children that’s it’s good to share, but online it’s different and sometimes it can be dangerous. Through our straight-forward, step-by-step advice and Icebreaker email series, we’ll show parents how to untangle the web and teach children how to make the right decisions online, even when parents aren’t there.
Our new TV ad – Safety advice from a 10 year old.
Icebreakers email series – We’ve teamed up with O2 to create a bespoke email series full of tips and information on different issues eg cyberbullying and inappropriate content, with activities parents can complete with their child.
Family agreements – We have created a downloadable family agreements document for families to complete and fill in together.
Share Aware homepage - Read our step-by-step guide to being Share Aware and our TEAM (Talk, Explore, Manage, Agree) framework on how to stay safe online in four simple steps.
Net Aware - Our guide to the most popular social networks sites, apps and games that children use.
New sites site such as Musical.ly, Kiwi and Pokemon Go have been added this year, along with a breaking news page and top tips from O2 Gurus on blocking, private account settings or in-app purchases. The new Net Aware can be downloaded on both iOS and Android.
