E-Safety

 

Useful e-safety guidelines to discuss with your child:

 

  • Maintain an open dialogue with your child
  • Create a family agreement to establish your children's boundaries and your expectations
  • Give your child strategies to deal with any online content that they are not comfortable with
  • Consider using filtering software to block unwanted content
  • Explain the dangers of posting content and the trail that can be left behind
  • Understand the law by familiarising  yourself with the age ratings for games and apps
  • Familiarise yourself with the privacy settings and reporting features
  • Set up a family email address that your children can use when signing up to new games and website online
  • Encourage them never to divulge any personal information such as age, address or contact details to anyone online
  • Encourage your children to use nicknames (where possible) instead of their full name online and create strong passwords for every account.
  • Younger children (under 13) should not use social networking sites such as Facebook and they will delete any accounts that are reported to them.
  • Encourage your children to think carefully about any information, especially pictures that they post on their profile.
  • Help your child understand that some people lie about themselves on line.
