Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Parents of young children in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse can sign up for a free session about how to keep their child safe online.

On Tuesday 3 July, e-safety experts Computing Champions will be visiting Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot to advise parents on the dangers of a variety of technologies in the home, and talk to them about how to make their child ‘share aware’, preventing access to inappropriate content, appropriate use of social media and safe online gaming.

There are two sessions available, at 5pm or 6pm. Spaces are limited so book now to guarantee a space book.

Parents/carers can sign up for this free of charge event via the following Eventbrite link.

Neil Rickus, lead trainer at Computing Champions said; “Children are increasingly using a range of technology in their daily lives, including tablets, smart phones and video games consoles. During this interactive session, we’ll discuss technologies used by children and how to ensure they are used safely. There will be opportunities for questions from participants, along with time to address particular concerns. I look forward to meeting with you in July.”

Cllr Caroline Newton, Cabinet Member for Community Safety at South Oxfordshire District Council said: “Many parents are concerned about their child being safe online. This session will provide some helpful advice on what the dangers are and the easy steps to follow to help keep your child safe.”

Cllr Eric Batts, Cabinet Member for Community Safety at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “With technology, and the way young people communicate, constantly changing, it can be difficult for parents to keep up with what their child is doing online.  The workshop will help parents be more aware, so I hope many will take advantage and sign up to this free session.”

Funding for the training was provided by the South and Vale Community Safety Partnership.
