A Guide to Parental Controls

As young people use the internet more and more in their everyday lives, we wanted to share some helpful information for parents and carers about the controls available to enhance online safety.

Knowsley City Learning Centre have produced a useful guide to setting up parental controls to provide young people with a safer online environment. Parental controls can help to protect young people from seeing something that they shouldn’t – although it is important to emphasise that no system is effective all of the time so it is important to engage with your child and talk to them about their online life regularly.

We share regular online safety newsletters on our website, which includes many of the latest updates about apps, games and social networks. You can access these, along with the Guide to Parental Controls by clicking on the relevant links below.
