Over the next few weeks, schools will be sent copies of the yellow 'five' card to distribute to all adults who work in schools, look out for yours!

Social Networking advice

To assist staff and parents in understanding the issues regarding young people's use of
Social Networking Sites, Lesley Jane has produced a booklet in conjunction with Ashington High School, to view a copy please click on this link.

For more specific practical advice on the use of Facebook, ConnectSafely.org and the
iKeepSafe Coalition have announced the publication of A Parents' Guide to Facebook.
The 35-page booklet and online resource – available for reading and printing at www.connectsafely.org/pdfs/fbparents.pdf – provides parents with the perspective and 'how-to' information they need to help their teens optimise their privacy and safety on Facebook.

Parents Guide to Facebook

It’s designed to help parents understand what Facebook is and how to use it safely. With it, they
will be better informed and able to communicate with young Facebook users in their lives more effectively. That's important because 1) if something goes wrong, we want children to turn to parents and 2) as the Internet becomes increasingly social and mobile, a parent’s guidance and support are ever more key to young people’s well-being in social media and technology.
