E-Safety for Young Learners
In this growing digital age, children are becoming increasingly familiar with a range of popular online platforms and with access to multiple technology such as mobile phones or games consoles. We see the results of these trends at school and have spent time in the past educating KS2 children in an effort to help keep everyone safe and to raise awareness of certain apps and their appropriate use. As these trends grow, it can often become a challenge to keep on top of things and to stay up-to-date with latest advice and guidance, with this in mind we thought it might be helpful to share the information that we were able to use in the hope that it might also be helpful at home.
There are many charities and organisations which offer the latest information including helpful user guides to many online platforms. We can share a link from the BBC in relation to setting up parental controls after some concerning behaviour relating to Tik Tok usage, you can find the link HERE. We also recently discovered National Online Safety who have a really useful website including training for parents/carers endorsed by celebrities, regular information and great resources such as a series of posters. We’d recommend visiting their website and social media pages which are regularly updated.
