Staying safe online is an increasing challenge in today's world

On this page we give you up-to-date information about a variety of online apps and games. We hope you find it useful in this ever changing and challenging digital world. Some of the information may be more appropriate for older children but we felt was still valuable to share. Please contact us if there are any issues that you would like help with regarding online safety.

Safeguarding contacts and support  

We recognise that the unexpected may happen and cause families distress which may require some support.

Cornwall Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) 0300 123 1116

Devon equivalent (MASH) 0345 155 1071

Early Help Hub (where as a parent you can make a self referral) https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/earlyhelp

Family Agreements

We have also found that family agreements are something practical that children and parents can discuss and agree together. These can be very effective as they give both child and parent responsibility. There is a good template at: http://www.childnet.com/ufiles/Family-agreement-template.pdf The Family Agreement can go up on the fridge so everyone at home is always reminded of what’s been agreed.
