The Internet is an exciting place with endless opportunities for fun, games and education. It can also be an extremely dangerous place for teenagers unless it is used properly.
Make sure all laptops and computers are used in a communal area where the screen can be seen by all.

The Parents’ Guide to Teaching your Teen Online Safety
It contains plenty of helpful information such as:
One of aims is not to frighten or scare-monger. Therefore, we are unlikely to send warnings out to parents and carers or publicise issues in our newsletters, social media pages or website. Whilst sharing warnings is often done with good intentions, it can pose risks.
Seeing or hearing about this type of content can be distressing for both children and their families. If a child has not heard about the scare, it can make them curious, and they may look for the content online which they could find upsetting. By publicising there is also a risk that an individual will create a website with harmful content based around the scare.
We suggest, that if you are worried about information you have seen or heard about a scare, you should look at the article from CEOPS (see link below), which contains further information and links to other resources. You can always talk to your child’s form tutor too about your concern.
