Tuesday was E safety day and we have already had a school focus of E Safety learning which took place, looking at Smartie the penguin's story of using technology and how he approached problems and issues when using his tablet for games and being online.

Attached are some parent advice sheets and the children will be bringing some additional guidance home this week too.
Social media allows us to share pictures of special times with our family at the touch of a button, which is a great way to share those memories with friends, but it goes without saying that there are also many dangers of sharing pictures of your children online. Here are some safety tips if you want to do this : https://www.playlikemum.com/6-safety-tips-when-sharing-photos-of-your-children-online/
Tik Tok is a particular favourite currently and some children advised us they do watch at home. There are some restriction settings you can apply if a child is using your tablet or phone.
The other main area is to look at certification of games (attached) and how appropriate this is for your children. Games like Fortnite and Call of Duty are not always accessed by young children, but can be played in the background by a parent or older sibling and you may think your 3- or 4-year-old isn't paying attention to this, but it can still be quite harmful and frightening.
If anyone needs any further support or guidance with this, please get in touch.
