E-Safety

                

About Thinkuknow

Thinkuknow is an education programme from the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command.

Since 2006, Thinkuknow has been keeping children and young people safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.

Thinkuknow is unique. It is underpinned by the latest intelligence about child sex offending from CEOP Command.

Thinkuknow aims to ensure that everyone has access to this practical information – children, young people, their parents and carers and the professionals who work with them.

Alongside the Thinkuknow website the programme provides educational resources, including films, cartoons and lesson plans, to help professionals raise young people’s awareness.

For Parents and Children:

The CEOP website has advice about staying safe online. Some of the videos are quite hard-hitting so we recommend viewing them yourself, before sharing with your children.

With children able to access the internet at school, as well as at home through a wide range of devices such as laptops, iPads/iPods/tablets/Kindle Fire, games consoles (X-box, PS3/PSP, Wii) and mobile phones, we are working hard to teach our children how to keep themselves safe online. 

In school, the children across KS1 and KS2 will be learning more about E-Safety based around the following themes;

                   Internet Safety

                   Privacy and Security

                   Relationships and communication

                   Cyber-bullying

                   Digital footprint and reputation

                   Self-image and identity

                   Information Literacy

                   Creative Credit and Copyright

We are also going to be doing some more work with the children so that they can share their E-Safety learning and knowledge with their families at home. Below are some links you may find useful in helping your children to stay safe on the Internet.
