Keeping Safe Online!
CEOP! Keeping your child safe online!
Children are accessing technology and the internet at a younger age than ever before. It’s never too early to talk to your child about what they do online and who to tell if they come across anything online that makes them feel worried, scared or sad.
There are great resources you can access for free on the CEOP website: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/
