Age Restrictions for Social Media
Recently, our digital leaders did some research on the age restrictions of social media. They were surprised with some of the results and we're sure you would be too! Even if you have allowed your child to sign up to these sites and lied about their age, for example, stating you are 13, by the time you are actually 13, both Facebook and the outside world will believe you are 18. Would you be happy with your 13 year old child receiving content, adverts and messages aimed at 18 year olds?
Bishop's Hull's E- cadets
This term our Year 5 and 6 E-cadets have been working on the following challenges:
Digital footprints- our E-cadets taught a session about this to Key Stage 2 children.
Internet safety day- E-cadets ran small group sessions on anti cyber- bullying issues, in particular, how to use kind words.
Promoting GoBubble- a new social media app for primary children.
Remember that our E-cadets are there to offer advice or support whenever your child may need it. We have a box in the square where they can post any concerns they may have or they can talk to them on the playground.
