The rise of the Internet brings great benefits but, for our young people, also great risks. Enrichment activities, increasing parental knowledge and highlighting the dangers of the Internet and social media can all help, read on for more on how we help young people and parents stay safe online…
Social media guide – for parents
The use of social media amongst younger children continues to grow and with it comes a minefield of potential issues when it’s not used responsibly. Experience has told us that often parents are unsure as to their child’s social media use and the real dangers present when left unchecked. This guide aims to highlight different platforms of social media, how to safeguard your child, from privacy settings and monitoring through to basic features of more common platforms. The guide will also highlight signs to look out for, such as typical grooming behaviours and online bullying.
Social media intensive – for students
E-safety workshops and enrichment sessions – for students
The importance of online safety is rapidly growing and ever changing. Using guidance developed by the NSPCC and CEOP, this service helps support students in their own safe use of the internet for any purpose, including reputation management, digital footprint, FOMO (fear of missing out), online resilience, detoxing and more. Sessions can be run on an individual, small-group or class activity basis.
