In assembly today, we talked about what being ‘safe online’ means.
We also discussed what ‘Social Media’ is and whether any of you have used it. You were very honest; lots of you said that you had used it and I saw a sea of shocked faces when I told you how old you are supposed to be to use various social media platforms (see below).
So, given that a huge number of KS2 children put their hand up to say they’ve used social media, but you have to agree to being over 13 years old to get an account (older for some), what questions does that raise?
Some very difficult ones!
Maple Cross Children: We will be following this up in class. Your teachers will be finishing the quiz we started in assembly with you.
Parents: Social Media is an absolute minefield. We are looking to work much more closely with you on e-safety, More to follow, but in the meantime, please refer to our e-safety page or https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/
