Safeguarding for Parents

Parents and carers are very important in raising and influencing children and young people. You provide them with homes, care and nurture and are responsible for them. You know your children and often know what is best for them. We want to support you when things are going well and sometimes if you are having difficulties by helping you find the right services.

As a school we will be posting useful links to guide and advise you on a range of different themes impacting on young people today.

What Parents Need to Know about Tik Tok formely Musical.Ly

Musical.ly has a new name - TikTok (Safer Internet Centre)
The social network app Musical.ly has often given adults cause for concern because of the way that children use it to generate and share their own short videos and lip sync to popular audio clips. The app has a new name and new features, and now includes live streaming. Although the app has an age-limit of 13 years old, in practice there will be younger children using it, and the content may not be suitable.

Profiles on TikTok are automatically set to public, so that any content you post can be seen by anyone within the app.  There is also a Restricted Mode which can help to filter out inappropriate content and prevent  the user from being able to start their own live streams.

 This leaflet aims to give parents/ carers information that is a MUST read if your child is on this app.

The Underwear Rule

The Underwear Rule is a simple way that parents can help keep children safe from abuse - without using scary words or mentioning sex. The NSPCC have developed a simple guide for parents, and a child-friendly version, to help you talk PANTS with your child.





A children’s charity has advised parents whose kids play ‘Fortnite’ to take steps to ensure they’re staying safe online.
The NSPCC and O2 have launched new advice for parents amid concerns over a game function that automatically allows users to speak to other players through voice and text chat functions. It means children can be contacted by anyone else who is playing the game. Users can disable voice chat in the game via the settings menu, but the text chat function cannot be turned off. 
Research from NSPCC and O2, of 2,059 children and young people aged 11-18, reveals that that one in four children have been contacted online by someone they don’t know.

Laura Randall, NSPCC’s associate head of child safety online, said: “Apps, sites, and games such as Fortnite: Battle Royale can be great opportunities for young people to play and engage online. However in light of emerging concerns about the risks children could be exposed to, we are urging parents to be aware of Fortnite’s features. Its’ vital parents have regular conversations with their children about the games they are playing, and how to stay safe online.”

The NSPCC and O2 are offering parents the following advice, in response to the concerns about Fortnite:

Talk to your child regularly about what they are doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen. You can use these conversation starters to help.

Explore your child’s online activities together. Understand why they like using certain apps, games or websites and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe.
Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games. You can use this Family Agreement template to help you get started.

Manage your technology and use the privacy and parental control settings available to keep your child safe.
Anyone looking for further online safety advice can contact the O2 NSPCC online safety helpline on 0808 800 5002
