Below is a set of support sheets for making sure your child is safe online and you are aware of the issues and dangers of using online APPs and websites without adult monitoring and support. Please note the legal age restrictions on these sites and think about the other users who can use these resources.
The attached guides have been designed to teach parents about the dangers and risks of: Age-inappropriate content, Fake News, Live-streaming, Online Bullying, Online Gambling and Skin Betting, Online Grooming, Online Relationships, Online Reputation, Phishing, Radicalisation, Screen-addiction, Sexting, Sexual Violence and Harassment, and the Dark Web. These excellent parent guides are designed to highlight the key dangers of the most popular websites and apps that children are currently using and suggest effective strategies for keeping them safe while using them.
We would greatly value your support in monitoring the use of these by your children as we are becoming aware more and more frequently of issues that children are experiencing using these resources and the impact this then has on their learning and relationships within school.
