At this time of year we always have online safety conversations with our children in school. We would also normally invite the Safer School Team from Dorset Police in to talk to some classes and parents. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, we aren’t able to invite them into school this year. We will continue to educate the children about keeping safe online, but you may be interested in this advice from the Dorset Safer Schools Team on things you can do at home to ensure your child is staying safe whilst using a device or playing online games.
The Safer Schools Team have a new portal section: https://www.dorset.police.uk/help-advice-crime-prevention/young-people/professionals/ which includes some useful information for parents, young people and professionals.
Information for parents
They strongly advise that Parents/Carers should be regularly monitoring what their children are viewing/engaging with online.
