Students & Social Media

3 February 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have recently received concerned calls from parents and carers regarding the dangers of the Live feed on Instagram which anyone in the public domain can access and watch and comment on.

Please be aware of the risks involved in using Instagram and any form of online social media for our students who are particularly vulnerable to grooming through social media under the guise of friendship.

Instagram like most social media accounts is for students aged 13 or over.

It is parents and Carers responsibility to keep their child safe out of school hours.

Please read the links below to find guidance on Instagram Live feed and Online Safety. article/instagram-faqs

We also have parental information sheets on various online services on this website here.

Stay safe everyone!
