e-Safety for Home Learning

ThinkUKnow has put together some pages intended to provide you with support and resources to help you learn about online safety at home with your child.

Please read their Parents and Carers help sheets – there is one for primary and one for secondary. These contain key online safety advice and links to their resources, as well as support services.

Once you have read the help sheets, please use their Home Activity packs – click on the links on the page to download your first home activity packs for each age range. Each pack contains two 15 minute activities to do with your child, using Thinkuknow resources.

Because children will be spending more time online, why not do a family agreement to keep them safe? Creating a family agreement is a great way to start conversations about online safety. Together, you can decide what’s good to do online and what you should look out for. Once you’re both happy, why not stick it up somewhere as a reminder? You can also come back to it regularly to see if it’s still working. Make sure you regularly review what you have agreed together to keep this up-to-date.
