Adding parental controls to a variety of devices
At Cranmore we take the issue of Internet Safety very seriously and on these pages you will find information that will support you as parents/guardians.

Internet awareness for parents and carers
By promoting Internet safety at home, parents and carers can help to reinforce the messages taught in school and help to equip their children with the skills needed to use technology safely, especially where the filtering and firewalls on C2k systems in schools are not available.
Parents and carers are advised to:
- discuss with their children the rules for using the Internet and decide together when, how long, and what comprises appropriate use
- get to know the sites their children visit, and talk to them about what they are learning
- ensure that they give their agreement before their children give out personal identifying information in any electronic communication on the Internet, such as a picture, an address, a phone number, the school name, or financial information such as credit card or bank details. In this way they can protect their children (and themselves) from unwanted or unacceptable overtures from strangers, from unplanned expenditure and from fraud
- encourage their children not to respond to any unwelcome, unpleasant or abusive messages, and to tell them if they receive any such messages or images
