Modern technology is giving people more access to more information at record speeds.
We recognise the appeal of these technologies to young people and the positive role they can have in education and communication.
We are however, aware that regardless of how innocently these technologies may be used by children and parents - there are risks involved.
It will not have escaped your attention that cyber-crime, kidknappings, extremism, violence and social media misconduct have been getting more frequent in our daily news. Technology can be a positive force in the world, but not everyone has good intentions. With a basic understanding of technology, criminals and potential criminals are able to track devices (and therefore people), hack into bank-accounts, study your daily routines etc.
To help you understand the risks, we are working in association with a CEOP trained professional who will deliver a parents workshop around e-Safety issues. We cannot urge you enough how important it is that you get to grips with these issues.
Our session is taking place on Thursday 12th March at 3:15 pm in the school hall. Due to the nature of this session children are not allowed. For children of a primary school age the school is running an after school club for them to attend on that day. Refreshments will be provided to all that attend. The session is free-of-charge.
For any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact me or the school office.
Mr. J Stephens - e-Safety coordinator
