Keeping your child safe online

Kidsafe – Helping Children Protect Themselves

Wouldn’t it be amazing if every child in the UK knew how to recognise the signs of abusive or potentially harmful situations, and had the confidence and self worth to know what to do to keep themselves safe?

Kidsafe UK (Registered Charity 1105179) was established in 2004 as a unique way of equipping children with the skills needed to protect themselves from all forms of abuse. Find out more about Kidsafe by checking on this link


Pan European Game Information (PEGI) is a European video game content rating system established to help European consumers make informed decisions when buying video games or apps through the use of age recommendations and content descriptors. The PEGI system is now used in 38 countries and is based on a code of conduct, a set of rules to which every publisher using the PEGI system is contractually committed. The age rating is not intended to indicate the difficulty of the game or the skill required to play it.
