E-safety meetings

 

Thank you to the parents who came to the meeting held at the beginning of June.  It was great to see more of you coming and learning how to keep your children safe when using computers.

If parents and carers were not able to come and would like to read some of the information on how to keep children safe when using: Youtube, WhatsApp and Snapchat I have uploaded some help documents below.

 

Thanks again to the parents who came.  I look forward to seeing you all at the next meeting.

Sexting

 

What is sexting?

Sexting is when someone shares sexual, naked or semi-naked images or videos of themselves or others, or sends sexually explicit messages.

They can be sent using mobiles, tablets, smartphones, laptops - any device that allows you to share media and messages. 

Sexting may also be called: 

    • trading nudes
    • dirties
    • pic for pic.

During E-safety week the children all enjoyed activities based around E-safety.  

They watched a video made by another primary school looking at some of the problems with cyberbullying.  If you would like to watch it yourself, I have attached it below.

Please visit all the class pages to see what the children did during E-safety week.

Parenting in the digital age

 

School has bought into a very useful resource that will provide an online course for all parents to support them with 'Parenting in the digital age'.  It covers a range of modules from understanding all the different social media platforms like; Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram to finding ways of making access to the internet safer for all.

 

We were hoping to run sessions in school for anybody who would like to come and take part.  If you would be interested in taking part in these sessions please contact school (either through the office or the parent feedback form click here)

 

If you would like to complete the course at home yourself, I can provide you with a log in and password.  Once again, please let school know either through the office or the parent feedback form click here.

 

Thank you

 

Mr McGrath

This sheet looks at what your children leave on the Internet and how they can protect themselves from leaving too much.  Particularly looking at social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), the pictures they post and things they write.  Remembering that once it has been posted, it is there forever!
