Social Media Usage

Please find below some helpful suggestions when educating your child about accessing apps and websites.

  • Do not join any social networking sites if they are below the permitted age (13 for most sites including Tik Tok and Instagram, 16 for WhatsApp)
  • Tell a parent if you are using the sites, and when you are online.
  • Be aware how to report abuse and inappropriate content.
  • Do not access social media on school devices, or on their own devices whilst at school.
  • Make sure all comments are appropriate and kind (including in private messages) when commenting about others.
