The National Curriculum states that we are to 'ensure that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.'
One strand of the KS2 computing curriculum is for children to 'use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.' This builds on the KS1 strand to 'use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.'
It can be difficult for adults and parents to keep up with the increasingly advancing changes of technology and so can cause worry.
Below is a collection of guides we believe to be suitable for our parents as we are aware that there are some children in school using these social media platforms and online games.
