Advice and support for Parents and Carers

Online safety is an increasingly important part of keeping children safe at Cliftonville Primary & Pre-School. All pupils are taught how to stay safe and behave appropriately online, but this approach is only successful if we work together and reinforce safe behaviour at home too.


Whilst for many children and adults, gaming and watching a film can be an enjoyable activity, it is essential that parents ensure that their children play or watch age appropriate video games and films and discuss safe behaviour.


We have recently had children talking about games they play and films they have seen, that are clearly age inappropriate for them.


We strongly recommend that you talk with your child(ren) about the types of games that they are playing and films they watch. If you’re not sure what they are or what is involved, ask them to show you. If you have any concerns or require support with any issue arising, then speak to Mr Clayson or a DSL directly.
