With Christmas approaching and many young people receiving the latest technology or spending long hours online, our safeguarding team would like to bring your attention to the following:
Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off.
The website provides guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. There are also films, downloadable guides and links to support organisations.
You can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where you can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.Click here to return to the current newsletter
