Pupils use of mobile phones and Share Aware
Over Christmas there have been mobile phones as gifts to pupils and we have seen an increase in these here at school. In the interests of trying to help keep our children as safe online as possible, we'd like to share a few links to important information relevant to all parents and carers. The first is a link to the NSPCC's 'A parents guide to being Share Aware' which presents advice relating to information your child may be sharing online.
The second link leads to the Net Aware website, providing critical information on social media websites your children may be visiting. Net Aware highlights the different age restrictions of certain social media websites and apps, and provides feedback from children on what they like and don't like about them. It presents striking visual representations of whether reviewers think the sites and apps are appropriate for children or not and the respective risks involved. Please take a moment to visit this site and investigate a few of the popular social media sites.
The final link is to our mobile phone policy here at the school relating to children bringing them in and using them on site.
