Social Media Advice

Many of our children are using Social Media we have no idea about. Many of the apps are harmless ways of keeping in contact.

However, is your child safe? Do you know who they are chatting to?

Please look at these excellent fact sheets for the most popular social media sights – Social Media Advice here

Staying Safe over the Summer

The summer holidays can be a dangerous time for children online.  With fewer structured activities, and potentially significantly more unsupervised time, children can be at a greater risk from the dangers which run throughout the year.

UK Safer Internet Centre have released some guidance in the past, which I feel is very useful to parents/carers.  If you have a way of sharing a link with your communities, please do share the whole page, which also gives access to additional links.  For a paper copy of the information, please click the link below.

Staying safe online this summer – website link (this is last year’s advice but they normally update in July which may be too late to get an update to you from myself, however, you could simply just share the website itself which is: www.saferinternet.org.uk  

There is really useful advice enclosed about time online, sharing holiday images and other information that may prove useful.
