Safeguarding Message: 27 Sept 2017
Advice to parents:
Who is your child “friends” with on Social Media?
Further to recent inappropriate requests on Instagram to some of our students, we advise you to check your child’s social media accounts. Some students are ”friends” with people they do not know, making them vulnerable to indecent requests and/or propositions.
Students will be spoken to about online safety specifically related to this incident using the CEOP ‘Online Friends’ material and advice. Please also take the time to sit down with your child to check their online friendships. If you have any concerns do not hesitate to block inappropriate friends, add strict privacy settings and parental controls to safeguard your child. If you think your child has been exposed to inappropriate contacts phone the Police and report it, or contact the school for advice.
