Using Search Engines
It's really important to stay safe when using the internet. One really easy way, is to use these search engines which are made especially for children. So when you want to search for something, give these a go. They filter out all the adult content, leaving only child friendly results.
Alternatively, if you are using a search engine such as Google, make sure you have chosen the 'safe search' option. You can find it here:
Keeping Safe and what to do in an Emergency
I would like to introduce you to SCASKIDS – a new educational website designed for children, parents and schools that has been launched by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.
The website – which can be accessed at www.scaskids.co.uk – provides easy advice and information for children, parents and teachers designed to help ensure young people can stay healthy, safe and know what to do in an emergency.
SCAS mascot 999 Ted provides seasonal tips on how to stay safe and healthy; basic first aid advice and information for dealing with bites, stings and cuts along with more serious emergencies when a person might not be breathing or suffering the symptoms of a heart attack. Videos showing the equipment that is on a modern ambulance, when you should dial 999 and a fun zone packed with games and educational resources.
Computer tool to help stop online grooming
Below is a link to a computer program that you can use to monitor your children's use of social network sites, if they access inappropriate content or if strangers try to make contact with your child via the internet and vice versa.
It can be usde for multiple devices in the home and you can have a phone app that alerts you to any unsafe internet activity in the house.
