Staying Safe Online
The Local Authority and its schools are committed to promoting the safe and positive use of the online world to school pupils, and their families. The use of technology has risen substantially throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic, so making sure our children and young people are staying safe online has never been more important. We’re encouraging parents to please be vigilant about what their children are watching and playing online, and to make sure that they are only accessing age appropriate content, including posts on social media platforms.
Hwb Cymru, the digital platform for teaching and learning in Wales, has some really good information and advice which parents and carers are also able to access. There is advice on a wide range of subjects including data protection; extremism & radicalisation; misinformation and inappropriate content as well as some useful guides to all the latest online games and trends popular with children and young people.
