Please remind your child to stay safe online by blocking any requests or contacts from unknown people and ensuring that personal details are kept private.
Any e-safety concerns should be reported to the Academy safeguarding team or directly to the police if those concerns relate to criminal actions.
Please see below a reminder of the guidance provided to pupils and Parents/Carers:
Keep safe by never giving out personal information such as your name, email, phone number, home address, school name, or other account name (e.g. Snapchat username) - to people who you don't trust or know, online.
Never meet someone you have only been in touch with online. If an unknown person asks to meet you tell your parents and inform the Academy Safeguarding team.
Do not accept emails, messages, or open files, pictures or texts from people you don't know or trust. They may contain viruses, offensive messages or illegal images. If you have any doubts about data or messages that you have received tell your parents and inform the Academy Safeguarding team.
Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the Internet may not be reliable. Only engage with people and sources that you trust.
Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried. Pupils and families can discuss and report any e-safety concerns with the Academy Safeguarding team and any online abuse can be reported to the Police at; www.ThinkUKnow.com
