Keeping your child Safe online
With an ever-changing digital world, the need for our young people to be safe on line and to understand how to use the internet and digital technology appropriately and safely is essential.
Students will address these issues during the course of their PSHEE and tutor programme in school.
In order to be able to support your child in addressing some of the issues faced when using social media and the internet, we have found the following links to be helpful:
- Vodaphone Digital Parenting
- Safer Internet Parent Guide
- NSPCC Keeping Children Safe Online
- Supporting young People Online
Cyerbullying - The issues
Social Media - Safer security settings:
- Connect Safely Instagram Guide

The National Crime Agency's (NCA) CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats. Their website contains further details about how to keep your child safe online and how to report concerns you may have regarding inappropriate activity online
If you have any further questions please contact your child’s Head of Key Stage.
