Important Information - Social Media

Dear Parent/carer

 

A number of reports have been raised regarding abusive messages over social media, more recently via snapchat.  It is important that you ask your child to remove themselves from any groups which target individuals or incites any abusive context.  If your child or anyone you know has been subjected to any form of online abuse please report it immediately to the company, i.e Snapchat.

 

We are working closely together with all the local schools and Colleges to raise awareness and support students, but as many of these groups include community members and students from other local schools/colleges it is becoming increasing difficult to support students and parents.

 

To help support parents/carers in managing the challenge of social media Caroline Dinenage, Gosport MP, will be holding a Cyber Safety Event on Thursday 7th February.  For more details and information regarding booking please click here

Thank you for your cooperation regarding this matter
