Important Information about Internet Messaging

Unfortunately over the last couple of weeks we have been informed of incidents which involve children using obscene and abusive language in instant messaging apps. Often these can be late on in the evening on weekdays beyond 9.30pm.
We appreciate many parents monitor devices closely,  remove them at bedtime and / or have clear rules around the use of games / messaging apps, however if you would like any advice / support, the NSPCC www.net-aware.org.uk/ has a vast array of
information with parent / child views, advice about setting parental controls, how to start conversations and set family agreements, rules around image sharing, keeping personal information private and expert views about various apps, amongst many other things. The site really is worth a look if you haven’t done so before.
We really appreciate your support with this. Many thanks.
