Please click here to see the power point presentation from our information evening for parents held on 30th March 2017.
Some of the main points from the training, which those parents who attended would like to emphasise are:
'Talk to your children about what they are doing, be involved and part of it.'
'Make it part of your family life and speak to your children about what they are doing'
'Snapchat photos don't always get deleted after 10 seconds and can remain on servers.'
Webcams can still be connected for others to watch you through if your computer is hacked, cover them up with blue tack.'
'Check the settings on your provider and the devices to ensure you and your devices are protected.'
Have a look at the Links tab and scroll down to see a variety of websites which can give you further information and sites which can help educate your children about keeping safe online.
Do you know who your child is in contact with online?
Please make sure children understand the importance of keeping their personal information safe. Posting personal information on social media or sending messages can lead to strangers getting hold of it. Items of personal information such as full name, address, telephone numbers, photographs and school name should all be kept secret and not posted online. Encourage your children to think about who else might be able to see what they ost on their websites.
