Gaming safely

HOW SAFE IS YOUR CHILD ON LINE?

As you know we at St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School take Online Safety very seriously. Recent online games have  become quite popular with all ages of children and we would like to supply you with additional information in order to help you guide your children when they play online.  Therefore we have listed several links which we feel would benefit parents. Please feel free to browse these sites, add them to your favourites and talk to your children about them.

The following website PEGI is particularly good to use when you are considering which games to purchase – it gives you a brief outline of the game and a recommendation of what age group the game is suitable for.

PEGI – The Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) age rating system was established to help European parents make informed decisions on buying computer games.
The system is supported by the major console manufacturers, including Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, as well as by publishers and developers of interactive games throughout Europe. The age rating system was developed by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE).
