Staying Safe Online

If you’re in charge of a social media page for your club or organisation, you mind want to have a look at this briefing from the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU):
//www.nspcc.org.uk/Inform/cpsu/resources/briefings/social_networking_services_wdf69029.pdf.

You will find all you need to know about keeping young teens safe on Facebook on their official safety page for parents. Other social media sites will have guidance on age restrictions.

There are some key tips which can significantly help to reduce the risks involved with social media and the internet. Make sure that your family computer is in a main living area, and the screen is positioned so that you can see what’s going on. Google have some more advice on their family safety pages:

Bullying can happen online too, and it’s known as cyber-bullying. If you, or someone you know, has had this happen to them you should tell an adult that you can trust. Have a look at the Think You Know page on the internet for more information about staying safe online:
