Internet Safety

The internet safety evening for Parents’ covers some simple, practical steps that parents can take to help limit the risks as well as advice they can give their child about Internet Safety. Run by the KES e safety team, which includes 2 CEOP's ambassadors, the evening will consist of a one hour presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions. The world of social networking spaces will be discussed and parents will be given an insight into why young people use these spaces. Potential online risks including cyberbullying and unwanted contact will be tackled. Resources will be available to take home in order to further explore the issues.
