This page contains some links to other Web sites that we think might be useful,
particularly when you are trying to do
your homework or want to revise for SATs.
Don't forget that just because you find something on the Web doesn't
mean that it is definitely true - so check
carefully. If in doubt, ask your parents or a teacher.

- Know IT All
The main aim of Know IT All is to help students reflect on their use of communication technology, be aware of the dangers and develop safe and discriminating behaviour when using new technology. Using a combination of animation, fictional stories, interactive quizzes and movies, the resource emphasises how young people can protect themselves from hazards online and how they can look after each other by behaving responsibly and not putting others at risk.
- NetSmartz Teens
The NetSmartz Teens website provides hard-hitting esafety messages predominantly through a series of real-life stories told by teens who have been victims of internet exploitation.
Covering four key areas – mobile, landline, TV and PC – this website aims to show young people how to stay safe and in control when using premium rate services and understand the mechanisms used to apply charges to phone bills.

This website, developed by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, provides information for young people on how to stay safe online. It covers various topics, including: Mobiles, gaming, social networking, chatting, podcasts, blogs, P2P, TV.
