Thank you to all parents who attended our Parent Internet Safety Evening on Tuesday 20th November 2018 presented by Tanya Cross (School Health & Wellbeing Advisor).

Some of the main points we learnt and found most useful were:-

  • New apps and social media updates
  • How important it is to keep the lines of communication open with our children
  • Check the privacy settings regularly and ensure privacy settings are set
  • The E-Safety survey results and statistics
  • The age of the children using different apps and social media sites
  • Acronyms for texting and what they mean
  • Monitoring internet usage and setting limits
  • Digital footprints
  • Doing a social media cleanse regularly
  • Using the CEOP button to report
  • Being reactive to change in childrens behaviour and to protect well-being and mental health

Thank you for all your postive comments and feedback and remember to check the school facebook page regularly for updates on keeping your child safe online.

Look out for the CEOP button at the top right hand side of our main school website page. Please use the CEOP button to make a report if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. CEOP helps to keep children safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. All reports are taken seriously.

As well as making a report, the CEOP Thinkuknow website has information and advice to help you if something has happened to you online.
