Parent Safeguarding Resource Hub

With children likely spending more time online, now is a good time to remind parents of the risks certain websites, apps and social media can pose, so that they are aware of the steps they can take to protect their child.

The Key Support Services have created a safeguarding hub that allows parents to access interactive guidance on setting up parental controls on their child’s devices, as well as guidance on apps like TikTok, YouTube and Instagram and more. The Boulevard Academy’s unique link is available here for you to access.

The links below offer guidance on how to prevent against radicalisation online, as well as highlighting which socialising apps could pose dangers to children. Please take the time to read through both and take care monitoring your child’s online activities.
