The Parent Zone and CEOP (the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command of the National Crime Agency) have teamed up to create a new information service for schools and parents on internet safety and issues amplified by the digital world : www.parentinfo.org
As the online world changes on a daily basis, keeping up with new apps or social problems amplified by the internet can be difficult. That’s where Parent Info comes in.
The website publishes articles and videos from leading experts on a vast array of topics on a weekly basis. All the information is up-to-date and, as it’s collated from experts in their field, it’s reliable and accurate information which is backed up by extensive research.
There are 5 main topics; digital, sex and relationships, health and wellbeing, family life and education and the future, with several subcategories for each.
Parent Info also covers other general offline issues that take on a new life online, such as the effects of pro-anorexia websites on eating disorders, how online media images can ruin girls’ lives and what to do when your child is being bullied online.
Schools can also make use of the resources for PSHE lessons or in school newsletters or factsheets – all the most up-to-date information on digital issues on tap.
Anyone can also access the content by going directly to the website, www.parentinfo.org
The service is now rolling out nationally – to register your school for the service, please go to the website and click sign up.
