Online Gaming

Online gaming means you can play in real time with people across the world through a computer, games console, tablet or smartphone connected to the internet.

What is Online Gaming?
Online Games can offer children a world of adventure to immerse themselves in, but it’s important to understand how children can stay safe and what games are appropriate for their age.
Check the PEGI Rating
The PEGI (Pan European Gaming Information) labels appear on a game’s packaging indicating one of the following age levels: 3, 7, 12, 16 and 18. They provide a reliable indication of the suitability of the game content for different ages. Descriptors will indicate the main reasons why a game has received a particular age rating.
Keeping your child safe whilst online gaming

There is nothing like sitting down with your children and joining in some of their games to find out just why they find them such fun.

  • Find out what sort of games your children enjoy.
  • Ask who they play with online
  • Who they meet and talk to
  • What kind of language is being used in live chat (usually via headphones).
