Do you understand what your child is doing on the Internet? Learning more can help them stay safe...
There are lots of resources online designed to support Parents/Carers in keeping their children safe online. We have signposted below some of the best examples of these.
Nobody can expect to keep up with every single online trend, new app or latest guidance.
What we can do is work together to teach our young people strategies to keep them safe online, ensure they know who to talk to should they be concerned and have the confidence to report content that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Online safety is an integral part of our curriculum and our staff are trained in how to support young people to keep them safe online.
If you have any questions or concerns related to Online Safety, please get in touch with your child's tutor or Head of Year in the first instance.
