We have worked closely with East Coast Health Care and the Norfolk Healthy Schools Team to bring together some useful information for parents and children.
The following links will take you to websites full of information for parents/carers on how to help keep your children safe on the internet, whether that be on a laptop, i-pad, tablet or on a mobile device.
The “Thinkuknow” website is brought to you by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre. You may have seen some of their video clips on National TV recently.
Welcome to CEOP's (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) 'Thinkuknow'
Come and find the latest information on the sites you like to visit, mobiles and new technology. Find out what’s good, what’s not and what you can do about it. If you look after young people there’s an area for you too – with resources you can use in the classroom or at home. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online. All the information here is brought to you by the team at the NCA's CEOP Command. We hope you like it!
