Maintaining a safe environment/Social Networking:

The internet is a fantastic learning tool and enables access to information that supports all areas of the school curriculum. However, it can be a real time waster if misused.

Without considering the consequences, children sometimes post private information about themselves online. This can include their name or address, photographs, a mobile phone number, their school name and details of their friends or families.

Parents can:

Social networking happens on a variety of services like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Google and Twitter. These websites allow users to create profiles, communicate with others and form networks of friends.

Parents can:

• Set house rules about when children can give out or share personal information such as name, address or mobile number

• Advise children to set profiles to private so that only people they want to see it can

• Encourage children to think before they put anything online. Information posted online can be there indefinitely

• Encourage children to be careful when making new friends online— they might not be who they say they are—and never arrange to meet an online friend unless a trusted adult is with them

• Report abuse or inappropriate content to the website administrator and show children how to do this using the internet safely at home.
