This afternoon after school we will be holding our first E-Safety Drop-In session where you can come and ask questions about, and discuss, any e-safety issues that are concerning you. It may be that I can provide help or advice there and then but if I’m not able to I will try and find out answers to your questions, or at least point you in the direction of someone else who can help.
The session will last until 4.15 (when after school clubs end) and will take place in Mrs Nethersole’s room.
Thank you to those of you who came to our E-Safety Meetings last week which were led by the NSPCC and O2. The hour-long workshop aimed to help parents and carers understand more about their child’s online world and build confidence to have conversations with them about it.
Whether you attended or planned to attend but couldn’t, your views are important. They help O2 and the NSPCC improve the experience and impact of the workshops for parents and carers joining them in the future. Please take a few minutes to complete a short online survey about your experience. The survey can be accessed here: www.nspcc.org.uk/ParentO2feedback
Don’t forget this isn’t the end of your online safety journey. Children need continual help learning how to navigate the risks and dangers online. Having regular conversations with your child is the most important way to help. And it’s never too early to start.
If you need any further support or guidance, check out the website pages and step-by step guides online, call the O2 and NSPCC Online Safety Helpline on 0808 800 5002, or pop into your local O2 store for help from a Guru.
