KARL HOPWOOD is coming to TBSHS!!

Date: May 22nd 2018

Place: TBSHS School Hall

Time: 6-7pm

All welcome

 

Karl Hopwood, who works with Childnet, will once again be visiting TBSHS on May 22, where he will address the entire school on E-Safety matters. He is a fantastic presenter and we learnt a great deal the last time he came. Parents, governors and friends of the School are invited to hear his advice, hints and tips at 6-7pm in the school hall. We do expect the Main Hall to be jam-packed (seriously—we do—he IS that good!).

Mr Pearson-Phillips has sent information to all parents but if you have not received this communication, please contact him directly for a place at this talk. This really will be one hour well spent and for those parents who have niggling doubts about how they manage the internet at home, (and their sons/daughters phone), Karl will try to assuage your fears!

With kind regards,

Mr Pearson-Phillips

 

General Advice from Childnet:

What do I need to know?

The internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children's use of technology can be a challenge, especially if you feel that your children may have better technical skills than you do. However, children and young people still need support and guidance when it comes to managing their lives online and using the internet positively and safely.                              

For detailed information regarding specific topics such as social networking, online grooming, gaming, downloading etc see Childnet

A simple and effective way to get involved with your children and their lives online is through discussion. Why not use our conversation starters for parents and carers to get the ball rolling?

Karl Hopwood

Conversation starter ideas:

  1. Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
  2. Ask them about how they stay safe online. What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not OK to share?
  3. Ask them if they know where to go for help, where to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the services they use.
  4. Encourage them to help. Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would benefit from their help and support.
  5. Think about how you use the internet as a family. What could you do to get more out of the internet together and further enjoy your lives online?
