Cyber safety and parental controls

Parental controls

Below is a copy of  a presentation to parents dealing with parental controls, and some helpful web sites dealing with this area of student safety:

  • Presentation (PDF 615KB)- A presentation given at our school on the subject of cyber safety. 
  • Internet safety presentation- Internet safety presentation for parents about how to keep children safe online.
  • Free parental control software- Information about different types of parental control software you can install on your children's devices. 
  • What are parental controls?- Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. And the good news is that parental controls are really easy to set up.
  • Things you need to know about parental controls-  Parental controls can support you in your efforts to keep your kids' Internet experiences safe, fun, and productive. But they work best when used openly and honestly in partnership with your kids - not as a stealth spying method.
