KEEPING YOUR CHILDREN SAFE ON MOBILE DEVICES

Around half of parents do not use internet controls or filtering software

13 per cent of parents of children aged 5–15 have not heard of such controls.
• Parents are even less aware of safeguarding controls for mobile phones and games consoles.
• While children are generally aware of how they should behave to stay safe online, they often do not use these strategies.

*Filter Through Your WiFi

http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-and-resources/parents-and-carers/parental-controls

No filter or parental controls tool is 100% effective, and many of the risks that young people face online are because of their own and other’s behaviour. It is therefore important to talk to your children about staying safe online with your child and make sure they know that they can turn to you if they get into any difficulty. For more information about key topics such as cyberbullying, sexting and social networking, see the more advice for parents. Click Link Below...

Other services that are popular with young people also provide tools that are helpful to activate in addition to filters.

  • ON AN IPAD USING BUILT IN SETTINGS


http://bit.ly/kE5efv

 iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches include a feature called “guided access” that allows you to lock your device into a particular app. 

General - Accessibility - Guided Access. Then tripple click the Home Button to turn it on and off.
 

  • SAFE BROWSING ON THE IPAD: 


There are numerous options available to you for safe browsing on the iPad rather than Safari which can be disabled in your restrictions (see above).

One is McGruff http://bit.ly/YRul5G which is free but charges for certain tools such as scheduling and looking at historical reports for the device. http://www.gomcgruff.com/browser/iPhone-iPad-Child-Safe-Browser.htm

Another is called Olly Browser and it is free. http://ollybrowser.com

NOTE: Some people have reported that some of these apps are a little 'clunky' on certain devices. Others have said they are perfect. Have a go - if it doesn't work for you then delete it and try something else. These are just suggestions. Good luck!

The internet is an important learning tool with so many uses in school as well as at home. We are living in a world where computers and technology are important. Almost every job has some type of computer or technology requirement. So it makes a lot of sense that all children need to learn how to use a computer and the internet.

There are many benefits to using the internet, but also risks. Schools need to be aware of the risks, and how to manage them, to keep their pupils safe. You need to be in the know.

There are lots of links on this page to help you. Some links will be for teachers' information while others can be used with children in school. The list of websites for pupils to use are all safe and easy to navigate, and they could use these independently.

Enjoy - and stay safe!
