As we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re all probably spending more time online than before, either with work or socialising. It’s important that we all practise staying safe online, and that students know what they should do if they have any concerns online. On Monday, we will send the following announcement to students through Show My Homework.
As you’re aware, because of the lockdown, we’re having to spend a lot more time on our devices, talking to our friends and family online. Because of this, it’s important that you remember how to be safe online, and if something happens online that you need support with, there are still people you can contact.
If you’re concerned about something online, speak to your parents/carers. You can always report anything to any of the teachers at the school, or email email@example.com.
If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, you can also use the following websites:
- Childline – for support
- UK Safer Internet Centre – to report and remove harmful online content
- CEOP – for advice on making a report about online abuse
Please continue to work hard and stay safe!”
Please use this as a time to talk to your child about what they do online and how they can keep themselves safe. Thinkuknow have been publishing resources for parents and carers to complete with their children during these times.Click here to return to the current newsletter
