Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and The Parent Zone

The Parent Zone was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. They provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them. 

CEOP is the child protection command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP reaches over three million children and young people a year through its Thinkuknow education programme and regularly conveys its vital online safety messages to over 100,000 practitioners (such as social workers, teachers and police officers) registered to their network, who cascade these messages directly to children and young people.

Eastlands Primary School has chosen to host the internet safety content from this FREE service on our website.  This content will be updated regularly.

Our first BIG event of the new academic was our participation in ‘Social Media Week’ (23-27 September).  The theme for this year was Open & Connected reflecting on the global impact of social media and its role as a catalyst in driving cultural, political, economic and social change.

We held a ‘Speed-E-learning’ session from 1.15 – 3.15pm on Friday 27th September to enable children and parents to learn together.

Workshops were organised on the following themes:

'Cyberbullying V Bullying'

'What is a friend?'

'Tweet as you wish to be tweeted'

'Computer games go online'

'Anonymity breeds disinhibition'

'Play smart!  Check the PEGI rating!'

'Online Protection'
