NSPCC – Online Safety

Online safety

The NSPCC and O2 have launched a campaign to illustrate how innocent searches online can lead to not so innocent results. The report highlights how using parental controls to block or filter content can help keep children safe online and includes information on how to set up parental controls on mobiles and tablets, home computers, search engines and games consoles.

MyTutor have produced a guide including useful tips and advice on healthy gadget use, alternative tech for learning, creativity and discovery, and how parents can encourage a balanced screen time ‘diet’ with their teens. Please see the link below for more information.
