BE INTERNET LEGENDS
Holy Family are proud to part of the Internet Legends Adventure with Google & Parent Zone for 2020.
Internet Legends is a fun and safe environment where parents can go with their children to learn all about being safe online. Please also see the attached for more information.
Thank you to the Two Johns who worked with all year groups to go through how to keep safe online.
Please see their Weblink for more information:
Many children have a Facebook account even though the T & C state the minimum age is 13 years. To help raise awareness with parents/carers of the safeguarding implications and provide practical advice the HSCB eSafety group have developed a parent handout.

E-SAFETY NEWSLETTER FOR PARENTS:
We all need to be aware of issues of the children’s e-safety, that is their safety on the internet, on social messaging sites when texting using mobile phones and via information on the school website. We focus upon e-safety during Health and Safety Week each year, but are aware that the promotion of e-safety is a whole year, joint home and school task. In order to help you to back up this work at home I have copied on the next page some recommended sites for you to visit as parents, and/or with your children, to give you more information and support in dealing with issues around e-safety. I hope that you find these useful. You can also access the letter and links on our school website:
