We are increasingly aware that the online world can pose an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.
I am delighted to announce that here at KWPS we have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety- providing resources for all parents and carers.
The resources include Parents & Carers courses (presented by Myleene Klass), online video resources and weekly guides covering a huge range of topics, including to mention just a few:
• Online Interactions
• Fake Profiles & Social Bots
• Online Bullying
• Online Grooming
• Live Streaming
• Online Identity
• Screen Addiction
• Online Challenges
