Online Safety and Computing Training for Parents
Led by Alan Earl, South West Grid for Learning
Brentry School Hall
Monday 22nd Jan 17.30 - 19.00
We would like to invite all parents & carers to join us for an informative session on popular technology - the positives and the potential pitfalls. This session will be presented by Alan Earl. Alan is a police officer currently on secondment to the South West Grid for Learning from the Avon and Somerset Constabulary’s Internet Child Abuse Team.
Many parents use technology widely today but still worry about what their children do online. Most children will manage their online lives well and build their own coping mechanisms just as they do with real life threats. They do however use the technology often in different ways to adults and this can bring its own problems. This session provides parents with a window into the current popular technologies and how young people utilise them. The interactive presentation provides parents with advice, coping strategies and resources to help them understand and engage with their child’s online lives.
If you have any questions regarding this session, please contact Hannah Jack at the school.
