Online Safety and Online Learning

During these unprecedented times, young people will have more free time on their hands to be online. 
 
With the increased time online, they are more vulnerable to situations such as stranger danger, stumbling across inappropriate content, being the targets of various forms of abuse or inadvertently facilitating malware.
Being online is an integral part of daily life. Social media, online games, apps and websites can all be accessed through mobile phones, tablets, laptops, computers and games consoles, these all form part of a young persons online world.
All of these things can provide a wealth of opportunities for learning and growth, however, it can also expose them to new types of risks.
It is important that parents know what apps your child/ren are using and who they are interacting with. Some children will recognise when messages they receive are inappropriate, or from an unknown person, and inform an adult they trust. If you have any concerns, please contact us at safeguarding@fueleducation.org.uk, we can then look at available help and support which may be needed.
Other children are more vulnerable and might not spot the signs. Please re-iterate the message to anyone using the internet "not everyone online may be who they appear to be, and children should only communicate with people if they know they are who they say they are".
Remember: having regular, ongoing conversations with your child/ren about what they’re doing, who they’re talking to and what apps they’re using is equally important as tech solutions such as parental controls or filters.
We have added some useful parental guides to some popular app social media platforms, games and apps and some useful links to help available if needed.
