Safer Internet Day 2019 – make a family gameplan

Safer Internet Day is an annual opportunity for schools and families to think about how we can make the online world a positive place for children of all ages.

Many of our pupils enjoy gaming at home, with friends and parents. Gaming can be enjoyable, creative and can develop problem-solving and collaborative skills.

You may want to know more about how to support your child if they’re gaming, including:

  • how to participate

  • how to manage their gaming time

  • how to make sure their child is sharing personal information securely.

A gameplan is an agreement you can use to help your child game safely and positively. Please find a gameplan template for your family available to download from this webpage, where you can agree what it is okay for you all to do when gaming.
