Posted 16th September 2016.
With the changes in social media, increased incidents of grooming and cyberbullying nationally, we at Castle Rock High School want to do our upmost to support parents and keep our students safe.
We will be running e-safety coffee mornings throughout the year for parents/carers. During the morning we will be able to discuss any concerns parents/carers have regarding e-safety and try to provide advice and support in relation to e-safety in a welcoming and understanding environment. We hope to encourage parents/carers to come and share their thoughts on what we can do to support them and our students as well as hopefully giving them some tips and help on current e-safety issues.
If parents/carers cannot attend the coffee mornings but would still like some support we have also opened an email account focused solely on e-safety: firstname.lastname@example.org . We would like parents/carers to use this service for any concerns they have regarding e-safety and also any advice, help guides for social media, and support. We can e-mail back directly or it may help us to identify some areas parents/carers would like to know more about.
Our first coffee morning is Monday 19th September 2016 from 10.30 - 11.15am for year 7 parents. If you cannot attend please e-mail any concerns or keep an eye out for our future e-safety coffee mornings.
*UPDATE* - the first coffee morning raised some interesting and thought provoking discussions around the subject of e-safety - so much so that another meeting has been organised for Monday 26th September at 10.30. The venue will again be The Hive. All parents are welcome to attend, please call or email Mrs Riley at the school for more information.
