This page contains resources for parents about the safety of your child online. There is a list of useful external links and a guide for where to go for help as a parent. The schoolâ€™s acceptable use policy is also linked below.
Our Student Digital Leaders have put together a range of useful help sheets and presentations concerning staying safe online and when using social media.

YouTube new parental controls
New controls have been released by YouTube to give parents better filtering management. Previously the only filtering option was ‘Restricted Mode’ which basically meant videos flagged as 18+ were filtered out. Called ‘Supervised Experience’ there are now filters for:
Explore – 9+
Explore More – 13+
Most of YouTube – all videos except 18+ (the current Restricted Mode)
YouTube released a handy explainer video which you can link to from your school website or share via your channels. The link isÂ HERE.
