Message from South Wales Police:
Parents of school-age children are being encouraged to be aware of what their children are doing online. During these unprecedented times, they are spending longer each day on the internet, so never has online safety been more important. Since schools closed, there has been an increase in the number of incidents involving indecent images being requested from, and sent to, children. Please - as a parent - make it your responsibility to ensure your child is as protected as they can be from this threat. Why not make internet safety the subject for a home schooling session before your children return to school? It could the most valuable lesson they’ve had - there are many helpful resources to help you and your child.
