Practical tips to help minimise the risks and keep your child safe online when learning from home:
- Encourage students to use the relevant websites/apps signposted by school for home learning e.g. Outlook, Frog.
- Set up parental control on all the devices that your child uses. This will help to limit inappropriate content.
- If they use social media, ask them to show you which apps they use and talk about how they use them.
- Encourage them to keep all personal information such as passwords, phone numbers, friend and school address details private.
- Remind them that people might not be who they say they are online.
- Show them how to report offensive comments or block people who upset them.
- Encourage your child to come and talk to you if they see anything that upsets them.
We want to ensure all our parents have the necessary information to help them keep their children safe.
