Online Safety Guides for Parents
We are committed to helping every parent keep their children safe when they are using technology. In school we monitor the devices, filter the content and use technology to transform teaching and learning in a safe way. At home the same kinds of monitoring and filtering can be achieved. However, the increase in mobile technology and apps is causing issues for a small number of children. Technology moves fast and it is difficult to keep up with what children are accessing online.
Children have grown up with the internet and technology from the beginning and are very proficient in seeking out what they want. The guides below are designed to support you in understanding the apps and games that your children are telling us that they are using. We hope you can use them to help protect your child and consider just how appropriate these apps are for your family. The website below keeps an up-to-date list of common apps and platforms (choose 'Social Media', 'Gaming' or 'Streaming' from the menu on the left).
