How safe are your children online?

Posted on: November 8, 2021

 Dear Parents/Carers, 

As I am sure you know, the online world poses an ever-increasing risk to our children. At OSSMA, we believe that we should be working together with parents and carers to take an active role in teaching children about online risks and how to protect themselves against these dangers. 

We recognise how difficult it is to understand all the apps and platforms that children use. To help, the academy has signed up to the National Online Safety program, which provides resources and help regarding how to keep your child safe online. 

The resources include Parents’ & Carers’ courses (presented by Myleene Klass), online video resources and weekly guides covering a vast range of topics, including: 

• Online Relationships
• Fake Profiles & Social Bots
• Online Bullying
• Online Grooming
• Child Sexual Exploitation
• Sexual Harassment & Violence
• Sexting
• Live Streaming
• Online Identity
• Screen Addiction
• Online Challenges
• Overspending
• Social Media Platforms
• Online Gambling
• Radicalisation, Terrorism & Extremism
• Age-Inappropriate Content
• Copyright & Ownership
• Hacking
• Fake News
• Online Fraud
• Online Reputation
• Personal Data
• Pornography
• Targeted Adverts & Pop-Ups
• The Dark Web
• Games & Trends
