Keeping our children safe online presentation
On Wednesday 9th March, at 9.30am and 6.00pm.
The presentation will be on Wednesday 9th March, at 9.30am and 6.00pm. This event is being held virtually, and a link will be sent when you sign up.
I am sure you will be aware of how much your children rely on modern communication technology such as the internet, smartphones and social networking as part of their daily lives, especially during periods of isolation and remote learning. Technology moves very quickly and it is difficult to keep up with what children are using. What they are posting online today could affect their future chances as well as compromising their safety.
- Do you know who your child is playing games with online?
- What are they watching on YouTube?
- What are they posting online?
- Do you have the knowledge and understanding to keep up with your child’s internet activity?
- Can you give them advice on keeping themselves safe online?
- Can you set parental controls on a variety of devices?
We would like to offer parents the opportunity to attend a face-to-face or virtual information workshop to learn about what children are currently doing online and how to ensure that you are protecting your children from online risks and dangers.
Leading the presentation will be Steve Welding, Sutton Borough Education E Safety Advisor. Steve is a former Metropolitan Police Detective who specialised in the ‘risk management’ of convicted sex offenders living in the community and is a member of AACOSS (Association of Adult and Children Online Safety Specialists)
The presentation will last one hour and will include a short film and information on informative websites and will explain how to set parental controls on various devices and game consoles.
We are sure this will be of interest to many parents/carers, so it would be very helpful for our arrangements and the preparation of resources if you could indicate whether you would like to attend this presentation by signing up at https://forms.gle/xrMFKd6wtbDPSruE7
We look forward to seeing you.
