Wake Up Wednesday- Hints & Tips for Parents
With social media now playing a major part in our everyday lives, together with the increase in the number of children who own or have access to a smart phone (as confirmed by the Education Minister, Gillian Keegan) our school has signed up to the National Safety Online website which has a number of guides called #wakeupewednesday.
These posters give hints and tips about how you can talk to your child/ren about being safe online. We all have a duty to ensure our children are save from online abuse and misuse so we hope you find these guides helpful. They will be sent to you each Wednesday via Parent mail and will also be available below.

Check out our #WakeUpWednesday guide for advice on beefing up your household’s cyber resilience. In the guide you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as how to use a password manager, how to back up your data and how to check for breaches.
