A Sheffield school has joined forces with two national organisations to help parents navigate the challenges of the online world.
Sheffield High School for Girls has organised a free online safety talk with leading online safety organisation Digital Awareness UK at Kommune on Angel Street in Sheffield city centre on Wednesday February 26 from 7-8.15pm.
The event, headlined by Charlotte Robinson from Digital Awareness UK and backed by Vodafone UK, will explore the online world for parents with young people aged 4-13 and offer help on topics including trends, popular apps, risks, screen time and critical issues to be aware of.
Nina Gunson, Head at Sheffield Girls’ said: “Many parents are battling with issues regarding their children and online pressures. Whether it’s about levels of screen time, keeping up with the current apps or trends that your child engages with, or communicating as a family about online life.
“The online world is a huge part of family life with many positives to be found – but with topics like inappropriate sharing, online safety and screen time constantly in the spotlight, we know families may need help navigating these challenges.
“Our free online safety talk with Digital Awareness UK will talk parents and carers through popular online apps and digital wellbeing trends; critical issues to be aware of and what steps you can take to protect your family from online risks.
“There will also be plenty of time to ask questions about any concerns you may have in the home around online safety.”
This event, aimed at parents and carers, is one of a series across the UK in partnership with Vodafone UK and part of its Digital Parenting programme.
