We urge all parents to speak to their children, nieces, nephews etc. and other children about what to do if they are frightened by something they see online. If you have a safeguarding concern please speak to the Headteacher or phone Cumbria safeguarding hub on 0333 240 1727 or click on this Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership link.
Useful Tips for Online Safety
Please encourage children to :-
• Talk to a parent/carer/trusted adult if they see anything or hear anything that is scaring them.
• If they are told ‘not to tell their parents’ then that is a green light to go straight to an adult.
• Not to download or accept any unknown contacts on social media or particularly WhatsApp.
