        How to keep your family safe online -NSPCC parent workshop

        Author: Bluecoat Stamford

        Many thanks to Sara Parker, NSPCC representative who hosted E-Safety workshop in association with O2. The workshop emphasised how important and useful technology is in our modern lives.  Technology will be increasingly used as our children develop into adults.  Sara wanted to raise awareness of sharing the children’s experiences of the on-line world so we have a better understanding of the types of difficulties they may face.

        O2 Gurus

        Sara explained that O2 are working very closely with the NSPCC.    They have set up a free service in store where ‘Gurus’ are available to advise parents on how to set passwords, filters and blocks on any device.  You do not have to be on the O2 network but may have to make an appointment in order to access the service at busy times.

        Where to get help

        Sara recommended parents to access www.net-aware.org.uk/ to get up-to-date information about Apps and programs that are currently popular with children.   It is an easy to use website  with advice about Fortnite, Snapchat, YouTube and Minecraft.
