BBC Bitesize are putting daily lessons on their website from today.
Go to www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize and enjoy some fun, age appropriate, learning activities.
On our website, we have provided links to many websites. Whilst we have looked at all of these, we cannot check every one in detail or follow every link or pop-up.
Introduce the following rules to help your children safe online:
• Children should be supervised whenever they are online. Computers and tablets should not be used in children’s bedrooms.
• Teach your child to close the screen and get an adult if they see anything online that upsets them.
• Put parental controls in place
• Remind your child about not sharing personal information online
• Use safe search engines such as swiggle.org.uk or kids-serch.com
• Do not allow your child to use live-streaming sites unsupervised
It is important that your children can stay in touch with their friends at this time. We are aware that some children have access to chat apps and are in groups. Lots also have opportunities to talk via Xbox live and PlayStation. Please help them to make good choices and be kind when using these. If something happens that upsets them, show them how to 'leave a group' and encourage two way phone calls or private messaging between them and one of their friends at a time.
Internet Matters www.internetmatters.com for lots of great advice on keeping your child safe online
Child Exploitation and Online Protection. https://www.ceop.police.uk/ceopreporting/ Use this link to report sexual exploitation, grooming or abuse online to the police.
