As a school we have a duty of care to ensure we are providing opportunities for students to learn how to use technological devices as well as providing an education in how to be safe.
We all know that technology has a fantastic amount of good uses and we need to promote these alongside teaching young people good habits, as unfortunately they can face potential dangers online. What is key is that we have knowledge of these ‘hazards’, and with school and home working together we can help young people make the right decisions and choices.
To help achieve this aim, we have organised an e-safety meeting for parents on the evening of Monday 30th April from 6:30pm-7:30pm with refreshments served from 6pm.
Clare Barrowman, who is the Health and Wellbeing Adviser at North Yorkshire County Council, will be delivering the session. The content will be relevant to all parents as it will provide information about current popular applications, how parents can help to keep their children safe online, what the potential risks and dangers are and how parents can manage access to social media in the home.
Please inform school via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone if you would like to attend.
Mr. M. Humphries
