Take Care When On-Line
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
Guidance for parents and carers on online sexual harassment and keeping children safe online.
The Children’s Commissioner has asked us to pass on the following information to parents and carers, which we are happy to do.
The Children’s Commissioner is today launching a guide for parents and carers on online sexual harassment and how they can support children to stay safe online.
The Commissioner’s office began a programme of work focussing on peer-on-peer abuse following the avalanche of testimonies on the Everyone’s Invited website. This was picked up in Ofsted’s June 2021 review of sexual harassment in schools and colleges.
A surprising but overriding message from young people is that parents should start these challenging conversations early. They suggest broaching topics before a child is given a phone or a social media account, which is often around the age of 9 or 10.
