The digital world is vast, exciting and forever evolving at such a pace that parents often find it hard to keep up. Our children have never known life before the online world and are getting more and more tech savvy at an earlier age. This causes many of us anxiety because we are not experts, we have not grown up in the age of online technology and we have not had childhood experience to draw upon when providing guidance for our own children.
However, the digital world doesn’t have to be considered a place of worry for parents; in fact, it can be embraced as a tool for building a better future for us all.
2Simple have put together this informative guide to help support you in enabling your child to grow into a responsible digital citizen who is able to keep themselves safe while, at the same time, getting the very best from the digital world.
In this guide, you will find tips and advice for each of the key areas of online safety for primary-aged children. Each of these areas is further broken down into tips for parents of children aged 5 to 7 and for those of children aged 7 to 11.
The tips and advice have been created with the rationale that they are flexible and can be adapted to suit the needs of your child including those with Special Educational Needs. There are many brilliant resources readily available online that support children with a range of Special Educational Needs. Childnet International is an excellent starting place for resources and links to other highly reputable providers of free advice and resources
Please find below a list of additional resources for parents.
All of these links were free at the time of publishing on the website

On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors of Furze Infants and Warren Junior School I would like to welcome you to our federation. We are two schools working together under one Governing Body for the benefit of our pupils and the success of the community we live in.
We believe our schools gain from working collaboratively, more importantly, we strive to provide a seamless transition for our pupils between the two schools.
