E-Safety For Parents
Keeping our children safe in a digital age is a challenge for schools and families to face together. At Long Mountain CE Primary School we want our children to develop healthy relationships with technology and to have a discerning and - above all - safe approach to online activity.
We have put together links to a number of resources that you may find helpful.

Support for Children
Thinkuknow is an excellent website for pupils, parents and teachers. We use it in school to support our e-safety teaching and pupils might like to look at the resources at home too.
Useful parent guides:
These helpful guides have been produced by the National Online Safety website. They are really clear about what ages these apps and devices are suitable for and provide information about elements parents need to be aware of.
Please note the following apps which should not be being used by children at primary school:
Snapchat is for ages 13+
WhatsApp is for ages 16+
TikTok is for ages 12+ (younger children must be supervised by a parent/carer/suitable adult.
These guides are included here to make sure parents understand the risks associated with younger children using them and to help inform families with old siblings.
