Updated Information on Safeguarding during Covid 19
It is very probable that children may be spending a greater amount of time using the internet, and in particular social media, during the coming weeks. We have posted here some online factsheets from the Safeguarding Training Centre which may be helpful to you. They give information about the potential dangers associated with sites such as Fortnite, Snapchat. WhatsApp and TikTok, how to use these sites more safely, how to change privacy settings and how to report abuse. The risks our children face are very different to those we learnt to deal with. We would suggest that you continue to talk openly with your children and monitor their online use regularly.
