E-Safety Coffee Morning

Thank you to the parents who came along to our coffee morning on Friday. It was very interesting to find out how to keep children and ourselves safe online.

Here are some tips given by PCSO Luke Carson.

  • Protect your child online as much as you would in real life
  • Ensure that games and gaming sites are age appropriate
  • Remember that chat rooms are used inside games and children could be talking to strangers online
  • Apps all come with age restrictions and children in primary school should not be on most of them as they are 13+ or 16+ (Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Music.ly)
  • Check www.commonsensemedia.org to find out more about websites and apps
  • Protect your own family on adult accounts too by changing privacy settings, changing passwords including WiFi routers and not using public WiFi accounts
  • Check your child’s social media accounts, messages and computers randomly not scheduled or at the same time¬†each week

Thank you again to Luke for coming in and informing us about this important subject.

If you would like more information about keeping safe online or the apps the children are using, do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
