E-Safety at home

Supporting e-safety at home:

At home, you can support our work in keeping the children safe by:

– Exploring E-safety sites with your child;

– Ask your child about the SMART rules;

– Keeping your computer in a shared area – Talk to your child about what they are doing online and ask them to show you which sites and which apps they are using.

– Discuss the dangers of social networking applications such as Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Whatsapp, Vine, Tumblr, Google+, Wanelo, Kik Messenger, Ooovoo, Ask.fm, Yik Yak, Omegle and  Yo and discuss with your child why these sites have a user age of 13.

We actively encourage our children to not have social media accounts until they are the appropriate age, and we ask you to support us with this. There’s an age restriction for a reason. Thank you.
