Our children use the internet much more than previous generations and the safe use of the internet brings many challenges for parents and schools. Current advice for parents and carers from Dorset Police Safer Schools and Communities Team (SSCT) is available for download below and covers a range of topics.
This page can be used as a resource for parents and carers guiding their children through life both within school and outside as they grow up in an ever changing world.
We hope you will find the links and references useful.
Keeping Children safe:
This page has a wide range of advice on how to keep your child safe online and whilst using mobile devices. The vast majority of children use these devices even from a young age and it is vital that schools and parents work together to teach them to understand the boundaries for safe and legal use.
There are also helplines on this page for a variety of agencies offering support to parents and children.
For information on how to keep your child safe while away from home at sports, clubs and other activities, please see this link:
