Safe Gaming

Gaming Devices

Gaming devices provide a variety of interesting activities and ways for young people to engage with their friends and families.

However, it is important to be aware of what these devices can do and how you can talk with your child to help them to use this technology in a safe and positive way.

All modern gaming devices offer parental controls to help you manage how your child uses their device, but these do need to be set up in order for them to be operational. On this page you will find documents informing you how to set up your child's devices safely, including links to apps to download that will help set time limits and prevent children accessing unsuitable sites.
