Parent Info

Parent Info is a new free service for schools.

Here you’ll find a collection of articles, tips, expert advice and resources designed to help parents keep up with what their children are doing on-line.

Parent Info is a collaboration between Parent Zone, which has been providing information and support to parents for a decade, and CEOP, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command of the National Crime Agency.

Share Aware

It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games. Or know how to keep them safe.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with O2. Together we’re helping parents untangle the web. And teach their children to be Share Aware.

Because, just like in real life, kids need your help to stay safe online.
