Internet Matters Y6

Dear Year 6 Parents and Carers

Over the last 12 months, the internet and particularly social media, has been a lifeline for so many people to keep in contact with each other. It is a fantastic tool and it has been wonderful to hear of the 'whatsapp' study groups over the lockdown, with children supporting each other.
However, as the children have all returned to school, we are noticing a rise in conversations online with others that are upsetting to both children and their parents.
Please always check that your child is safe online. Attached is some useful guidance. is also good for activities to highlight the dangers in the digital world.
If you have any questions, or would like any further advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.
