Staying Safe Online

We want all young people to stay safe online and you will have noticed that we’ve been releasing parent guides for things like Instagram, Roblox and Snapchat over the last few months.

We are committed to the basics of staying safe online and applying those basics to all forms of activity. Childline offers some great information:

Parents can play their part too by working with children and being aware of what is being accessed and how.

We believe that all forms of social media and online activity can present a risk if they aren’t used properly, not just the ones that the media picks up on for a while. It’s through sustained education, care and awareness that we will be able to make a difference and keep our children safe.

We are on hand to support students and parents if they have any concerns or worries about #cybersafety; please message us directly and we’ll do all we can to provide the right resources and answer any questions. In the meantime, the attached guides are good places to start.

We aren’t going to spread any panic but we do want you to help us, get involved and supervise what children are watching, whatever it may be.

Thank you.
