Brand new resource - Risky Online Spaces handout for parents

This handout complements the online parenting course, Parenting in the Digital Age, but also makes a great standalone resource, helping parents understand the functionality that makes some online spaces more risky than others for children and young people.  You can read and download it here.

If there's a particular app or website that you're concerned about, please let us know and we'll create a simple guide with messaging for teachers, pupils and staff.  Email dshelp@parentzone.org.uk with your suggestions.

SAFER INTERNET PARENT/CARER TALK: 7th FEBRUARY

Tuesday 7th February is ‘Safer Internet Day’ around the country. At Belleville, the children and staff will be taking part in a range of activities based on staying safe online and positive uses for the internet throughout the week. 

We invite you to a parent/carer talk about how you can support your child/ren to stay safe online. It will be held on Tuesday 7th February from 6:30-7.30pm at the Webb’s Road site. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible. Please see the school’s website for additional online safety information and details of other online courses you can access, so we can work together to keep our children safe. 

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please sign up in the school office at Webb’s or Meteor.
