Schools sign up for first ever national safety tool (September 15)

The government has launched a new online tool for schools across the country to give parents the best possible advice and tips on preparing their children for adult life. The new online service, called Parent Info, will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the minefield of issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to having a healthy body image and managing money in a digital world. As well as giving them the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, it will also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues.

  • 550 schools have already registered for new online service providing unprecedented advice and support for parents in tackling online risks
  • 1 in 5 parents say they currently feel ill-equipped to keep their children safe on the internet
  • Nearly a quarter of girls aged 9 to 16 say they have been bothered by something online
