Age Guidance- How Old Should You Be?


Useful websites for knowledge and advice

The internet is an invaluable source of knowledge (even about itself!), as long as you know where to look. Here are some great places to start.


This site is an enormous resource of up-to-date information, guides, tips and news. Usefully, it has information organised into areas for parents, specific age groups and teachers. A great 'one-stop' source of imformation. It is produced by online safety organisation, CEOP.


UK Safer Internet Centre

 This is a similar site to Thinkuknow, as it also has a vast range of resources covering just about any area of online safety that you could think of, and lots more that will be completely new. Its social media guides are particularly useful to parents, educators and anyone who works with children and young people.
