DO YOU FEEL CONFIDENT WITH ONLINE SAFETY?
Raising Online Safety Awareness: The importance of knowing the dangers on the internet
Date: Thursday 11th January
Venue: St. Margaret’s CofE Junior School
You are warmly invited to an online safety awareness workshop for all parents at St. Margaret’s and Briar Hill Schools. The Federation of St. Margaret’s and Briar Hill Schools recognise the difficult challenges parents can face with keeping their children safe on the internet, even more so at this time of year after new devices have been given for Christmas. The session will provide practical advice for setting restrictions on devices, safety tips to help manage online safety issues and discussions surrounding suitable behaviour online. The main purpose of the workshop will be to learn about specific online concerns and dangers, which your son/daughter may face or be exposed to, and to find out how you can minimise the risks. We hope at the end of the session you will feel you have a greater understanding and knowledge of the dangers your son/daughter may face and know where to go for help and advice if you have concerns.
We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. This session is designed to help you become more aware of the safety messages that your children receive in school in order to reinforce them in your home environment. We really hope that you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you there.
*Please note that the session will be unsuitable for toddlers due to the content being covered. There will be no crèche available. Briar Hill staff will keep your child in their class until 3.15pm so please let your child’s teacher know in advance if you will be attending.
