ICT support for families

Under the setting controls section, you will be able to find specific guides for phones, apps, devices and even broadband providers. Each one has a downloadable guide with clear step by step instructions on how to use settings and controls effectively.

Lots of resources to help parents and carers talk to their children about life online and how to keep a positive, honest and open dialogue!  One resource in this area is the family agreement template – a great way to all agree as to the expectations for being safe whilst enjoying all that the online world has to offer. Downloadable blank templates are available.

Spend just 8 minutes answering questions about your child’s digital habits and you will then receive a full toolkit of tailored resources to help support and protect your child online. Lots of really useful information that is all relevant to the responses that you give. A fantastic to navigate aspects of online life. Can answer for multiple children of multiple ages and interests. A great time saver!
