Finding the right time to talk 

Talking PANTS is as simple as teaching your child how to cross the road. You know your child better than anyone. And you'll know when they're ready and how much detail to go into. Some parents found these moments helped them start the conversation:

      • bathtime, applying cream or when getting your child dressed 
      • car journeys
      • going swimming and saying that what's covered by swimwear is private
      • during a TV show that features a sensitive storyline
      • singling along to our PANTS song with Pantosaurus.

The LSCB has carried out an online consultation with a sample of parents and carers across Cheshire East to find out more about keeping their children safe online. Many parents who completed the survey (88%) said they wanted to be better informed about e-safety. Of these 91% said there preferred information source was via their child's school. 

 At Underwood West we are keen to engage with parents and carers on this agenda. 

The NSPCC have teamed up with O2 have designed a free App for your mobiles called Netaware. It is a simple guide to the most popular social networks apps and games. You can learn about safety guidelines and privacy settings for Face book, Instagram, Snap Chat and more.
