As the internet becomes an increasingly powerful tool in our lives, it is important that we remain up to date with the latest developments and the implications these may have for our children.
At Archdeacon Cambridge's, an important part of our PSHE and Computing curricula is Digital Citizenship and Online Safety. We believe that ensuring parents and children are well informed is the most effective way to keep children safe online.
Many of our families will introduce new technology to their homes this Christmas. We recommend that all parental controls are set up before your children receive any new devices as, once the children get their hands on them, it will be almost impossible for you to do this.
This website provides step-by-step guides for setting up parental controls on almost all devices.
These QR codes will take you directly to instructions for setting up controls on your device.
PARENTAL CONTROL SOFTWARE
These are packages that our school team has personal experience of using. There are many other packages available. We advise that settings are such that children are only allowed to download apps with parental consent.

From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people’s role in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.
