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.

Students at Kirkby College use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular ‘e-safety’ activities to remind them of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. We also use software which restricts the sites that our students can access, as well as logging the sites that students access in school time.

At home, sometimes children may be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some useful website links to help you to keep your children safe online:
