Online Safety Presentation
On Friday 16th March 2018 Springfield held a presentation in school around ‘Keeping your child safe in a digital world’ for parents and carers. The presentation was delivered by PC Dave Pascoe from Lancashire Constabulary.
The session included information and advice to parents about what children and young people are doing online, the risks that children and young people sometimes take and how we can support our children to stay safe. Included in the presentation was:
- A guide to digital etiquette
- What goes online stays online
- Parental controls and tools to keep children safe online
