Online Safety

At Woodhouse, safeguarding our pupils remains highly important and the introduction of home learning and remote teaching brings with it greater challenges. Children will increasingly be using social networks to reach out to others and with that there will be an increased risk to fake news and online harms including grooming, radicalisation, exploitation, and bullying. All these issues could impact on their mental health and well-being. This is a time when many young people will be vulnerable and unfortunately, the potential for exploitation will be at its highest.

The UK Safer internet Centre has identified the following online risk categories;

  • Behaviour: sharing too much information
  • Content: age-inappropriate or unreliable content or fake news
  • Contact: strangers, bullies, groomers or radicalisers can contact children
  • Commercialism and financial exploitation: hidden costs of advertising in apps, games and websites
  • Extremism and radicalisation

Parents

Please be aware that there is the potential increase of fake/poor quality organisations offering online learning to families with young people.

Continue to talk to your children about their online activity. The following websites offer a wealth of information and advice about keeping children safe online
