Social Networking: Keeping sage on the Internet
There are no shortage of websites with information for young people, their parents and teachers, about keeping safe on the Internet. The website www.connectsafely.org provides advice and guidance on controlling who can see the information posted. It also has some useful guidance for parents, ‘A Parents Guide to Facebook’. Advice is available from the Child Exploitation Online Protection Centre (CEOP) at www.thinkyouknow.co.uk . A leaflet ‘Young People and Social Networking Sites’ can be downloaded from www.kidsmart.org.uk.
Do not hesitate to contact the Child Protection Officer, Mrs Claire Venon, at the college if you have any concerns about websites or other child protection issues.
