Still image for this video
With the threat of offenders using online live streaming platforms increasing there is a need to educate children about the associated risks. #WhoIsSam is a short animation that highlights the importance of parents and carers talking openly to their children about: being safe online, healthy relationships, speaking out if anything happens online that worries them or doesn't feel right. The animation signposts to the Thinkuknow programme and the CEOP Safety Centre, where parents/carers can report directly to CEOP if they are concerned about the online sexual abuse or exploitation of a child.

 

App Advice

Below, you’ll find a series of online safety guides (from National Online Safety) relating to the most common apps your children are likely to interact with.   

   

Apex Legends 

 

 

If your child plays Fortnite, then they may already know about  Apex Legends: the newest player on the battle royale stage. Although the game is for a slightly older audience, it’s great fun to play and could possibly be the new gaming craze of 2019.   It has a PEGI 16 ratingfeatures more  gun play and gory scenes and can  encourage binge playing as battles last from 20-30mins.
