We regularly talk to pupils about these internet safety rules...why not keep a copy up at home to remind you to talk about it as a family too?
There are always new concerns about children using various Apps, games and internet media. The 2 Johns, who many of you will know from our parent workshops, always share up to date advice for parents on: https://www.esafetytraining.org/ so look here regularly.
Technology can provide children with a window to the world, offering them lots of opportunities to learn new things, have fun and stay in touch. You might your child is spending more time online at home, playing games, scrolling through social media, or chatting to friends than you would like.
While it’s important that young people maintain social contact and have regular down time to relax, it’s vital that they know how to navigate the internet and social media safely and do not become "screen zombies."
