Most social media sites have restrictions limiting the age of people who can hold accounts. There are good reasons for these restrictions, even though it is relatively easy to bypass them to set up accounts. While the children are in school we have strict filtering systems that prohibit access to any content and social media aimed at older users. Even so we regularly have to respond to issues arising from children’s inappropriate use of social media sites outside school hours. We are required to report all alleged misuse of such sites to the police even when it happens outside school time. This can be very confronting for parents and distressing for school staff. Please can I ask that parents actively monitor their child’s use of a computer, iPAD or phone. We regularly provide cyber-safety information and can direct parents to on-line information as necessary.
