May 2021: Update
Through our PDL and computing sessions, we have noticed increased discussions regarding TikTok and other apps on different devices and some of the children's understanding around keeping safe online, who, how and what type of concerns to report on and the age restrictions around TikTok and apps. We deliver online safety lessons regularly through computing and PDL and discuss with the children how to keep safe online.
This section on our school website is dedicated to online safety, where you can find useful information of how to stay safe online at home. We have also attached a useful parent guide regarding TikTok and an information sheet of how to have conversations about online content for your information.
