Online Safety

Latest Online Safety Newsletter - Autumn 2022

What is Online Safety?

  • Safe guarding young people (and adults) in the digital world
  • Learning, understanding and using new technologies in a positive way
  • Adults being educated to be able to support and help young people
  • Not about restricting children, but educating them about the risks as well as the benefits, so they can feel confident and happy online


Key Advice For Parents/Carers:

  • Talk to your child and understand how they are using the internet and their phone,
  • Use safety tools & parental controls-if you are not sure how contact your service provider
  • Please note tools are not always 100% effective
  • Your child is just as likely to be a bully as to be a target. Be alert to your child being upset after using the internet/phone-they may be secretive, change relationships with friends
  • Remind your child not to retaliate
  • Keep any evidence of cyberbullying emails, online conversations, texts etc to show the school/police
  • Report the cyberbullying
