Internet Safety

The Aspire Academy Trust takes internet safety extremely seriously.  We appreciate it can all be a bit of a minefield, both in keeping up with your child's IT habits and skills and navigating what's appropriate and what's not on the great world wide web.  So, in order to stay as digitally safe as possible, we have put together a list of regularly updated links and downloads we hope you will find useful.

ParentGuidance for online sexual harassment and keeping children safe online

The Children’s Commissioner has launched a guide for parents/carers on online sexual harrassment and how they can support children to stay safe online. 

“The things I wish my parents had known” draws together advice from 16 to 21 year olds on how parents should manage tricky conversations around sexual harassment and access to inappropriate content, including pornography.

A surprising but overriding message from young people is that parents should start these challenging conversations early. They suggest broaching topics before a child is given a phone or a social media account, which is often around the age of 9 or 10.

It is hoped this guide will serve as a useful starting point to raise awareness and understanding of online harassment, and to complement key messages on the new relationships and sex education curriculum.  Please click on the link below:
