We have been asked to give the following message to Parents/Carers:

 

South Tyneside Safeguarding Children and Safeguarding Adults Boards, in partnership with South Tyneside Council and Northumbria Police, are supporting Internet Safety Day 2019.  This will be launched by The Mayor of South Tyneside Mr Ken Stephenson, on Monday 04 February, 10am-12noon at The Word, National Centre for the Written Word, when there will be the opportunity to view the first in a series of video podcasts aimed at supporting parents and carers with keeping children safe online.  More editions of these will follow in future and these are being shared with all of our partners including schools.

 

Following the launch there are a series of drop in sessions aimed at helping people of all ages to stay safe online, as well as providing a top tips guide for identifying and dealing with internet scams and bogus callers. The sessions are open to both professionals and members of the community.
