Online Safety at Home from The CEOP Education Team

While some of our children are learning at home and to support our continual work in school to encourage our children to be safe and happy digital citizens, we wanted to share these resources from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP) team. Their #OnlineSafetyAtHome packs are now available online. These include new activities for:

  • 4-5 year olds
  • 5-7 year olds
  • 8-10 year olds
  • 11-13 year olds
  • 14+ year olds

You will find a selection of the resource packs for week 3 in the section below.

For links to the packs above, click here. There is also some advice for families in a digital world available online by clicking here and information for child online safety during lockdown and advice on how to report your concerns by clicking here.

CEOP Education’s new video guide and accompanying article, developed in collaboration with The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (Ukie), helps parents and carers to understand:

  • How in-game chat works;
  • How it might be abused by others, and;
  • What they can do to help keep their children safe whilst using in-game chat

Gaming can be an active experience for children and young people. A new Parent Info article explores how active gaming works and the games available that help them stay active. 

Parents and carers asking for advice on Roblox? Share Parent Info’s guide which takes a look at how the platform is used and how it can be made safer for children.
