Do you want to help your child use their mobile phone safely?
We know that some of our older pupils have their own mobile phones and we regularly talk in classes about how to stay safe whilst online or using their phone.
I have seen a useful resource from EE that is designed for parents and carers of older primary-age children – it allows grown-ups to fully understand how children use their phones, how to help them identify risks and also gives children a ‘PhoneSmart Licence’ if they complete the ‘course’!
You simply need to register yourself, then set-up your child’s profile, then they can log-in and complete some fun online activities with you to show they understand how to use their phone in a ‘smart way’!
In this world of changing communication and media use, it is really worth while taking control of helping our children – I hope this is useful and I would appreciate any feedback!
