Online Safety

We know that many of our pupils use social networking accounts, mobile apps and online games even though nearly all of these have age restrictions.  We need to educate ourselves in order to keep our children safe when using devices online and so the links listed below will give you some advice.

Speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead at school if you have ANY concerns regarding your child's online activity or malicious content that could affect them.

 

 

#Wake Up Wednesday is a national campaign by National Online Safety which has been designed to inform and help parents understand the dangers and attraction of different types of online activity. It covers everything from Social Media to the latest games, allowing parents to keep up with the ever-changing world of digital resources. 

Each week we share #WakeUpWednesday via the School Story on Class Dojo.

WhatsApp is the most widely used messaging platform on the planet, with over two billion users (forecast to become three billion by 2025), across more than 180 countries. The majority of those people (70%) open the app at least once a day – but what exactly are they seeing? Contact from strangers, fake news and convincing scams are all among the service’s well-documented hazards. 

 According to Ofcom, WhatsApp is used by more than half of 3- to 17-year-olds in the UK (including one in three from the 8–11 bracket), despite its 13+ age restriction. If your child hops onto WhatsApp to stay in touch with friends or family, our updated #WakeUpWednesday guide to the service contains the key details you’ll need to support them in doing it safely.
