Online Safety for Parents / Carers
Parent / Carers' Guides for Online Safety
We are proud to be a National Online Safety certified school and we know that children love being online. The internet is a fun, exciting, sociable and engaging place. However, the internet also has its dangers. Young people seem to be rich in knowledge surrounding technology and it can be difficult to keep track as our children explore the online world.
Whatever they are doing, our parent guides (updated regularly) will help you keep your children safe as they navigate the online world. Share these guides with your children. Start an online safety conversation today.
Tik Tok is a social media platform for sharing videos created by users. Tick Tok users can also view and create videos on the platform. It is a little like Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram. What makes it so popular is how young people are attracted to recording and uploading short videos of themselves that can be played on a loop. These videos are often of dance routines or lip-syncing to familiar songs, often to get laughs from the intended audience. As Tik Tok is incredibly popular and mostly aimed at a young audience, there has been some thoughts about its addictive nature. Are there any other risks? Use our guide to find tips and facts about the Tik Tok phenomenon.
