Child Protection Websites:
CEOP helps keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. They help thousands of children and young people every year, as well as their parents and carers.
They can help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to them if something has happened to a child online which has made either you or your child feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone they know in real life, or someone they have only ever met online.

Parent and Carer Online Toolkit (Childnet)
The new non-statutory guidance, Teaching Online Safety (2019, DfE), was published in the summer. It recommends that schools proactively engage staff, pupils and parents/carers in school activities that promote the agreed principles of online safety.
Childnet have updated their parent and carer toolkit that will help parents have conversations about online safety. Their booklet 'Let's talk about life online' includes ten key messages that should be shared with children:
- "You can always come to me if you need help."
- "What would you do if this happened…?"
- "Remember that not everyone is who they say they are online."
- "Keep your personal information safe, and other people’s too."
- "Be respectful to others online."
- "Think before you post."
- "Remember to ask if it’s okay."
- "Remember not everything is true online."
- "The things other people post online might not always show what their life is really like."
- "Recognise how going online makes you feel and take a break when you need to."
