 Online hate is something that your children will be coming across whilst they are using the internet and social media. Internet matters have created a toolkit to help parents tackle this issue with their children: Internet-Matters-Guide-Online-Hate-And-Trolling-Advice_GBTCv2-1-1.pdf

Castleford Park Junior's Top Tips for Parents:

  1. Communicate with your child about their online habits-start those conversations early!

  2. Establish clear boundaries with your child and monitor their online and social media usage.

  3. Have up to date anti-virus protection on your devices.

  4. Setup parental controls on your Internet Service Provider (ISP- your ISP will be able to give more information about how to do this).

  5. Make sure you are familiar with the www.thinkuknow.co.uk website and use the websites below to help you stay up to date.

  6. Always seek advice if unsure and know where to report your concerns. School will be only too happy to help. 


​We follow an 'Internet Legends' scheme of work designed by Parent Zone and Google to help us teach our pupils how to stay safe online. Parents can also use the same exciting and relevant materials by following this link: https://beinternetlegends.withgoogle.com/en_uk/parents/
