E Safety

The e-safety advisor who visited and spoke to parents, staff and governors produces a regular newsletter to help and advise parents. The April 2018 edition is now available to read or download. You can also visit his website and see previous editions or subscribe to receive the newsletter directly.

 

With the upcoming changes in data regulations and concerns about the kind of material children children can access, there are updates to some social media and video sharing sites.

 

WhatsApp are increasing their minimum age for users from 13 to 16 here and in the rest of Europe. Specifically this is because of our incoming GDPR regulations.
