The UK Council for Child Internet Safety was set up in the wake of the Byron Review (see previous post for details), and brings together over 150 stakeholders to collaborate in helping children and families with online issues.

This week the Council has released its first major publication entitled Click Clever Click Safe : The First UK Child Internet Safety Strategy. Among the report's recommendations are that lessons in the safe use of the internet should become compulsory in primary schools by 2011, and a framework for an online "green cross code" to enable children to block and report inappropriate content. For more information on the Strategy, take a look at this article, or for the results of a survey on children and parents' attitudes to internet safety, the DCSF has just published some new research.
