Online Safety Awareness Parent/Carer Session

Current statistics show that 70% of 8 – 17 year old’s have seen images and videos not suitable for their age online, and 1 in 3 children have been a victim of cyber bullying. Do you know enough about the internet to protect your children as much as possible? The way some of the children use the internet is causing upset and is something we deal with regularly in school. To help you understand these potential threats more we have brought in an outside company called Footlights, who work in partnership with Trafford Housing Trust, Trafford Safeguarding Children and Greater Manchester Police, to offer workshops after school for parents and carers to help educate you more in the how dangerous the internet can be.
The workshops will be held next Tuesday 13th March, after school, the first one will be 3.30pm – 4.30pm and the second 5.00pm – 6.00pm.
These sessions will help you to understand more about the dangers of the internet and enable you to gain a better understanding of how to ensure your children are safe as possible when they are using the worldwide web. Topics discussed during the workshop include: current issues and concerns with the internet, virtual reality and gaming, social media applications and sites and you will be given practical tips on how to minimise the potential dangers.
If you would like to attend the sessions could you please ask you child to bring in the reply slip below.
