We are delighted to have totally rebuilt, rewritten and revamped the childnet.com website. We’ve listened carefully to all those we interact with, heard from you what you want to see and worked closely with our design team to build and to develop the very best website that we can.
This website has new and improved areas and advice for all of our key audiences; children and young people, teachers and professionals, parents and carers and also an accessible press and policy area. It also features a new interactive resource matrix, which can be searched by both audience and topic. The wealth of Childnet’s award-winning resources and content are still housed on this new site, but the re-design will make finding this content easier than ever before.
If you’re at primary school I’d encourage you to look at the new area just for you where you can learn about staying safe online and also see some fun activities that you could try out at home.
If you’re at secondary school, check out our new Hot topics section where you can find out more about the issues that affect teens. We would love to hear from you if you want to get involved in our various projects and do let us know if there’s an issue or topic on internet safety that you’re interested in blogging about.
We’ve also updated our advice for parents and carers and teachers and professionals, including conversation starters, detailed advice on various different topics and links for more help and our policy responses remain an important part of our website.
I do hope you will take the time to familiarise yourself with this fantastic new content and to make the most of this advice. In particular, we have created a new interactive resource matrix, in which you can search for advice and support according to audience and topic, and it is our hope that this will make the wide range of tools and resources that we have readily available to those looking for it.
Finally, but by no means least, the development and design of this new website has been supported by the Nominet Trust and we are very grateful for their support on this important project. We would also like to thank our design agency Contrapositive, for all their on-going support and another ambitious project completed together. We look forward to this website growing with us over the next few years, and don’t forget to check back for the new content that we will be regularly adding.
