Ofsted describe e-Safety as: the school's ability to protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology and to have the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incident where appropriate.

PARENTINFO - What is ParentInfo?

ParentInfo is a regularly updated and free feed of information, advice and sources of support that schools can deliver to parents and carers. It is a vital resource for engaging and involving parents and carers with easy-to-digest content. The service aims to deliver information on a whole range of parenting themes, the emphasis being on helping parents and carers develop their children's resilience to the risks and pressures they face in today's world. The articles and videos cover difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet, body image and peer pressure, as well as broad parenting topics like 'how much sleep do teenagers need?'.

In line with Thinkuknow some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

Who is behind ParentInfo?

ParentInfo is a collaboration between the National Crime Agency CEOP Command and The Parent Zone. The ParentZone is a leading provider of information, training and support designed to make the internet work for families, with special emphasis on involving parents and carers.


Safer Internet Day is an annual event run by the INSAFE network and is celebrated every year across Europe, and in other countries worldwide. In the UK, Safer Internet Day is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre (www.saferinternet.org.uk), and this year’s theme is “Let’s create a better internet together.” To celebrate the many positives of the internet, and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, the children will be learning about staying safe online and how to be a responsible digital citizen.

Please download the e-safety leaflet which offers tips and advice which you can use to help support your child when using the internet. We will be talking to the children about the SMART rules, so it may be useful to familiarise yourself with them and discuss these with your child.

We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development.

Thank you for your continued support.
