This week the news has been filled with the latest internet scare—Momo, a unpleasant image that caused many children a lot of anguish. We’ve talked about this with affected children in school, reassuring them and talking about strategies they can use when something unpleasant happens online. Our ICT curriculum and SID, Safer Internet Day, equip children with the tools they need to stay safe online. However, many parents are not aware of the very real dangers that exist for our children who use the internet, phones and tablets.
On Wednesday of next week, at 9am in the hall, we have our annual parent’s workshop, delivered by the NSPCC. It’s really interesting, informal and absolutely will give you the tools you need to keep your child safe. Please come along to the meeting—there will be refreshments, it’s really informal and you will go away with lots of good ideas and tips.
