Internet Safety

A new campaign has been launched by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), with the aim of helping young children to stay safe while they are online. Parents and carers of children can access a Strategic Overview with detailed information on internet safety, while children are pointed towards the existing thinkuknow website, which has content that is targeted at different age groups.

Further information and documents relating to internet safety are available from the website of Childnet International, an international organisation which runs a number of projects in this area. And as you might expect, Becta have produced a number of materials that cover internet safety from an educational point of view - perhaps the most useful of these is Teaching E-Safety at Key Stages 1 & 2, which was published earlier this year.
