Social Media

09/03/2018

Whilst we are aware that many social media apps that the children are currently using have great benefits, we would like to remind you that all social media apps come with age restrictions (listed below). As such, if you choose to let your child use them, we advise that you retain any relevant passwords and regularly check what your child is doing online. Please also ensure that their accounts are set to private and that they only accept friend requests from people that they know. We also suggest that you regularly go back and change the age so that it displays as the youngest possible. Otherwise they will soon have access to adult content because the app believes them to be 16, 18 or over.
