With all of the potential that the online world and new technology offers, young people now have access to huge opportunities. They use technology to express themselves, explore, and be creative; it has changed the way they communicate.

The internet has changed all of our lives, and your child has grown up during this change. Many of the things that confuse, baffle or even scare us, are part of the everyday for them. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

Whether you're a technophobe or a technophile, it's still likely that you'll be playing catch-up with the way your child is using the internet.

You might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

This site aims to make online parenting simple. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Secondary/

If you have any questions about your child's safety online please contact our safeguarding team.
