Online Safety Sway for Parents

If you're wondering how to stay safe online, here are some free tips and resources.

Parents/carers, please remember one of the key principles of children and gaming: the majority of children use gaming for socialisation over and above the actual game. It's one of the reasons Fortnite, COD, PUBG and other games are so popular. CEOP released a YouTube video back in August that might be useful for some of your parents. It's only 38 seconds long but there is a lot of useful information on the video.

YouTube New Parental Controls

New controls have been released by YouTube to give parents better filtering management. Previously the only filtering option was 'Restricted Mode' which basically meant videos flagged as 18+ were filtered out. Called 'Supervised Experience' there are now filters for:

Explore - 9+
Explore More - 13+
Most of YouTube - all videos except 18+ (the current Restricted Mode)

YouTube released a handy explainer video which you can link to from your school website or share via your channels. The link is HERE.
