We are advising all parents and carers to be aware of your children’s online safety concerning the use of social networking sites and apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. These could be used through laptops, PCs, smartphones, tablets and other internet enabled devices. The majority of these popular social networking sites and apps are only for use by those 13 and over so children in a primary school should not be using them. The age limit is put in place to safeguard children, protect their privacy and to prevent them from being targeted with unsuitable advertisements. It’s important to know all the sites and apps that your children are using, across all your internet enabled devices, and that you make sure they are suitable and age appropriate.
Mr Foster and our IT Technician Mr Emran Kharodia are available to discuss any help you may need or concerns that you have.
