During lockdowns and the pandemic the use of social media and technology has grown dramatically, not only for recreation but now more than ever for contact with others and for schooling.
We must remain vigilant during this time to be aware of what our children are doing online and how we can keep them safe. All classes will cover e-safety and how to remain safe online but it is vital that during this time of lockdowns and separation that we are aware of how they are using technology at home.
The NSPCC has worked with O2 to create a useful video for parents about keeping children safe in our growing world of technology. It also links you to net-aware.org.uk which is a brilliant website for parents and carers to find out new information.
If you have any concerns then please contact childline (not just for children,) net-aware.org.uk or CEOPS (the button below will link you straight to them to make a report.
