E-Safety is and becoming more important in our everyday lives. Below are some support and information sites/apps which will help students, parents and staff stay safe online and advice & support for Social Networking.
Childline has launched an app that is the first to provide counselling to young people in need of help directly through their mobile devices. The app has been named 'For Me' to ensure that it can be discreetly installed. This means that if someone happens to see the young person's phone they can't tell it's a Childline service. This can be downloaded from your app store.
Technology has many benefits but it also brings some challenges for young people, such as bullying and sexting. Vodafone are trying to help children and teenagers get the most out of technology and become more confident and resilient when they are online. Vodafone have created this Digital Parenting website to support parents, carers and teachers and also to provide resources for young people themselves. It’s full of expert advice, ‘how to’ guides and information about other Vodafone initiatives, such as Be Strong Online, so that you can help your child to make the right digital choices. You can also sign up for a Digital Parenting magazine. Please click on the link below.
