Online Safety Update

Online Safety Update

You may find some of the following links useful and also please find attached the resources from a recent Parents Information evening on online safety.

How to set up your safety controls on BT, Sky, Virgin or Talk Talk broadband. Useful to ensure that age inappropriate materials aren't access on devices connected to your home internet access.

How to set parental controls on Xbox 360 and Xbox Live

How to set parental controls on PS4 (links to other Sony gaming devices can be found through the website) - this includes restricting games, DVDs and Blu-Rays that have age ratings.

What was really evident from our online-safety evening was that although the key messages are the same the apps, software, games etc.. can move on quickly and we need to know the potential dangers and discuss these with children so they can make the best choices.
