E SAFETY INFORMATION FOR ALL PARENTS

Share Aware, from NSPCC and O2, gives parents all the tools they need to have regular and informed conversations with their child about staying safe online. Under 20% of parents discuss online safety regularly with their children but we want to get every family talking about their child's life online, just as they would their day at school. The address below gives further information. https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-childrensafe/share/aware
