1. Parent info
This website from CEOP and parent zone is updated regularly with blog posts, research and articles. Schools can sign up to have a news feed on their site. The feed can be tailored to both the age of the children in the school and the topics that are the most relevant.
2. Vodafone Digital Parenting magazine
Vodafone have now produced four issues of their fantastic magazine. It covers a range of articles that relate to mobile phone, e mail, setting up parental controls and age appropriate games. Copies of the magazine can be ordered from their site as well as an online version which can be embedded into your school website.

This is a website that offers advice on important e-safety issues, includes news and advice from industry experts, guidance on setting parental controls and filters and reviews on the latest technology and apps. It has a fantastic interactive tool for setting up controls around the house that is quick and easy to follow.
As well as coming into schools and providing talks for parents, the NSPCC has a wealth of information on their website. They have an excellent share aware guide as well as a recently published guide to Minecraft.
