All Saints Academy will be holding a free session for parents on e-safety on January the 15th. The session will run from 15:30 to 17:00.
What is e-safety?
E-safety is a term which means not only the internet but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media, e.g. mobile phones. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.The aim of promoting e-safety is to protect young people from the adverse consequences of access or use of electronic media, including from bullying, inappropriate sexualised behaviour or exploitation.

At All Saints Academy we do not condone pupils under our care using Snapchat.
To use Snapchat an individual must be over the age of 13. When Snapchat says users must be over the age of 13, it is a requirement not a recommendation.
At All Saints Academy we do not condone pupils under our care using Facebook.
To use Facebook an individual must be over the age of 13. When Facebook says users must be over the age of 13, it is a requirement not a recommendation. Unfortunately in 2011 a study conducted on 9-12 year olds showed that 1 in 5 had a Facebook page whist 43% had some form of social media account.
