Important reminder - Internet safety

E-mail Print

Important reminderAs we approach the Festive season and young people may be in receipt of new electronic devices here are some helpful tips to make sure your young people remain safe on social media/internet.

:-  Please remind them not to engage with strangers online.

:-  Please remind them that they should never arrange to meet someone they have met online who is a stranger.

:-  Please be aware that the request of, sending and or receiving of sexualised images/chats/videos is a crime and should be reported to the police immediately.

:-  Please be vigilant and engage in conversations with your young person regarding how and when they are using their devices.

As a school we encourage the responsible use of electronic devices and any breaches we are made aware of have to, by law, be reported by us to the police.
