CEOP Primary KS2 : Jigsaw Suitable For 8 Yrs – 10 Yrs

CEOP Primary KS2 : ‘Jigsaw’ Suitable for 8 yrs — 10 yrs

This short film is called ‘Jigsaw’ and is suitable for KS2 Primary School children (8 — 10 yrs), approximate running time is 8 minutes. This short film is produced by the Child Exploitation Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and is being delivered to schools all over the UK through their ThinkUknow Programme.

The film helps children to understand what constitutes personal information and enables children to understand that they need to be just as protective of their personal information online, as they are in the real world. It also directs where to go and what to do if children are worried about any of the issues covered.

This is an excellent resource and I would strongly recommend to show this film to anyone who has ‘Primary’ KS2 children or children that are actively on Facebook or MSN / Messenger — bearing in mind the legal age to have a Facebook profile/account is 13 years old. However, on visiting schools throughout the country it is very apparent that children as young as 7 / 8 years old are managing to access and set up profiles and therefore, more than ever it is increasingly important to ensure that our children remain educated about online safety, particularly with Social Networking websites.

Please ensure that you share good practice, by letting your family members, friends and work colleagues know about the the ThinkUknow Programme and help keep our children educated and safe in this online world

“Malware” is actually short for malicious software program and also used as a sole phrase to pertain to virus, spy ware, worm etc. Spyware and adware are developed to produce damage to a stand alone computer system or a networked computer.
