Parents Online Safety Advice. Paul Richardson, Community Safety Officer would like to highlight the resources below. Both parents and teachers should find these useful. There are some informative articles covering age ratings, smart phone parental controls, privacy on Facebook (a high proportion of 10-12 year olds are on Facebook even though the age restriction is 13 and above). There are also some useful checklists for parents covering time and usage spent on line or playing games. Schools should engage with their Police Locality Integration Officer who can cover most if not all of these issues and provide awareness courses for both teaching staff and parents.
