Information from CEOPS regarding their New Parents and Carers Website

We're proud to announce that a Beta version of our new website for parents and carers is now live at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents. The new site offers a completely refreshed suite of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety.

Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off. Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations.

Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.

Watch this space for new resources to help you run support sessions based on the new website, which we'll be publishing early in the New Year.

Health Protection Agency

Due to the high levels of sickness in school caused through various bugs, the Health Protection Agency has produced an informative, interactive website about bugs and microbes. There is a separate section for secondary school students.
You will find lots of presentations that might assist a greater understanding of infection transmission and infection control.

Please also be aware that alcohol gels and sanitisers are only effective against certain bugs and so the recommended method for cleaning hands is still washing with soap and water.

Cybercrime: Preventing young people from getting involved

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has launched a public awareness campaign to highlight the increasing number of young people engaging in cybercrime.

The #CyberChoices campaign targets parents of 12-15 year olds who may be involved in hacking or other kinds of online crime without their parents' knowledge. The campaign, also aimed at professionals who work with children and young people, highlights the range of criminal activities that children may be involved in, how to spot signs of potential problems, what the consequences could be and importantly, signposts better ways for young people to use their technical skills.

For further information about cybercrime, and to watch the short film produced for the campaign, visit www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/news/765-campaign-targets-uk-s-youngest-cyber-criminals

For advice from the NCA on how to help young people avoid the risks of getting involved in cybercrime www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/crime-threats/cyber-crime/cyber-crime-preventing-young-people-from-getting-involved
