Online Safety: Band Runner: new Thinkuknow game and website for 8-10 year olds

Band Runner – the fun new runner-style game for 8-10 year olds – is now live on the Thinkuknow website.

The game features some familiar faces: Sam, Alfie and Ellie from the Play Like Share animations are continuing their adventures and helping children to  build their knowledge, confidence and skills to stay safe from sexual abuse and other risks they might encounter online.

Band Runner is hosted on an all-new Thinkuknow website for 8-10 year olds.

A key area of the new site is the ‘Stay Safe’ zone where Sam, Ellie and Alfie share child-friendly advice based upon their adventures in the films. The zone is divided into six  topic areas: Play, Like, Share, Chat , Lock, and Explore.

Children can visit the ‘Worried About Something?’ page which provides advice and support on how to get help if something worrying has happened online.
