Online Safety Advice for Parents and Students
The internet is an amazing resource if used properly. If not, it can be a minefield. As a parent, it is very difficult to stay on top of social media, apps, online gaming, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Snap Chat and the latest online crazes. More importantly, do you know what your child is doing on line? Do you know who they are talking to? Do you know what they are posting? Do you know how to take control and so ensure your child’s online safety? The following tips will help you to keep your child safe online.
If you are concerned with your child’s online safety please contact Mr É Casey, Assistant Headteacher/Designated Safeguarding Lead, or your child’s Head of Year for support.
