Safer Internet Day

Tomorrow is Safer Internet Day so I am just flagging this to remind everyone to talk to their children. Or, if you are already working within education – to make use of this platform to talk to pupils tomorrow about safer usage of modern media.

I have worked with families who have encountered some of the less positive sides of modern technology which sadly includes cyberbullying and grooming. Be more aware of your child’s usage and ensure that something untoward isn’t happening within your own home.

In terms of bullying rarely do children open up and tell somebody but there are signs to look out for and the NSPCC website features signs and symptoms and excellent advice to parents.

Please read my latest article on Innovate My School’s website tackling the sensitive subject of cyberbullying.
