From time to time we receive alerts that relate to the Safeguarding of our children. 

 

The information listed below relates to protecting them from various gaming sites and social media.

 

Please note the age restrictions on the below media sites. These restrictions are there for a reason and we advise you to stick to them in protecting your child(ren).

 

When we receive any information/advise our school will share it below and you will receive an alert through parent hub.

 

Please be vigilant, share with your friends and family but most importantly ‘keep your child(ren) safe’.

 

Thankyou

Instagram - Social Network

 

We have been contacted by Wesley Methodist and asked to share with you the following details.

There is an instagram account named,       i_know_you_Radcliffe_2

Young people are sending their names to the account holder and then the account holder responds with information including the street the child lives on, the school they attend, the friends they have in school and on their street, names of siblings, relationships etc. Nothing on any of these accounts are set to private, so anyone can see all this personal information, making the young person very vulnerable to any predators out there who may be accessing this site for the wrong reasons.

I have looked at the profile of the administrator and some of the “friends” they are following  are very suspect and suggestive of “friends” you would not want a child to be accessing.

When you search the i_know_you_Radcliffe_2  it shows you at the top of the page how many followers the group has, because there are no privacy settings you will be able to see any young person known to your school. You can also see the information being openly shared on the messages in response to the child/young person contacting the administrator, there are quite a few Bury schools named, mainly primary.

Please can I request that you send communication to all parents of every child in your school about the importance and seriousness of having accounts for all social media etc set to private (in an ideal world children and young people wouldn’t be even on these sites at such young ages, but we know that we are not in an ideal world!).

Mr Lonsdale has reported this site to CEOP, but as part of our safeguarding responsibility to our young people please ensure you inform parents of the risk this site poses to their children.

Many thanks,
Pauline Baker

Online Safety in the Computing Curriculum

 

The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role and so providing a broad and balanced online safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively.

 

It is not a requirement to use all the resources listed, and some resources can be used to deliver more than one online safety message. This guide provides a starting point for providing online safety teaching that meets the requirements of the curriculum.
NOTE: Embedding online safety teaching across the curriculum is considered effective practice and these resources can and should be used in subjects other than Computing too.

Below are some useful external internet link that will support and help our children to be 'Safe Online'.  The links are provided from 'Childnet'.
If you would like assistance with parental controls on any devices your child gets for Christmas you can call 0808 8005002. or you can click on the below web site for more information.
