Online safety is an important part of our safeguarding agenda at Penwortham Girls’ High School. As children across the country have spent more time online, the number of reported incidents relating to grooming has increased. It is important to monitor your daughter’s use of mobile devices and the internet to ensure she is safe.
Below are some links useful links and further information provided by the national agencies to help students, parents, and carers understand the threats that children may be exposed to on-line as well as ways of dealing with them.
We would encourage parents/carers to support their child by spending some time looking through the various links and discussing internet safety with your daughter.
As a school, we want to establish an online parent forum to consider how we can best support families with Online safety.
If you are interested in joining this forum please email email@example.com.
‘A guide for parents of children and young people who have got into trouble online’
The guide has been created for parents and carers who find their child is engaged in worrying inappropriate or illegal behaviour online.
The guide is designed to answer some of the immediate questions you may have after learning about something that is happening, or has happened, in your child’s online life. It offers guidance on how to talk with your child about it and help prevent it happening again.
Parents can call The Lucy Faithful Foundation Helpline at any time on 0808 1000 900 and speak with experienced operators. All calls are completely anonymous. The link to the guide can be found below;
