Advice on working safely online

The information below came in from Police Scotland and offers some useful resources in regard to keeping our pupils safe online.

“I’m aware that you’ve regularly been in touch with pupils and parents online & via newsletters etc, and you may have been sharing suggestions and advice about how to study at home & how to stay safe online. If not, or further to this, I was wondering if you would be able to share a few links with pupils and parents reminding them that there is advice available in relation to online safety.

We are concious that online learning will continue into the future and that young people will be spending more time on social media apps/chat rooms, hence, looking to keep re-iterating messages about keeping safe on-line.

The main source of advice is the UK Safer Internet Centre. Parents can also sign up for National Online Safety.
