Parent Talk with PC Simon Williams - Online Safety

Keeping Children Safe When Using the Internet and Social Media

We were delighted to host PC Simon Williams at HSL on Thursday 16th November to support our parental community with helping to keep children safe using the internet when outside of school. Whether it be on social media platforms, gaming or simply browsing the internet, it is crucial that children are educated both at school and home regarding the risks that children are exposed to. PC Williams' talk was informative, eye-opening and offered sensible advice with regard to monitoring a child's use of the internet. The issues discussed included:

  • Social Media Apps

  • Grooming and Social Media Influencers

  • Cyberbullying

  • Location Services/Settings

  • Parental Controls

  • Passwords

Thank you to all parents who attended this talk. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we'd like to offer more support in the future for this important topic. For more information on how to support your child online, please look at the pastoral support pages on our website.


We'd also like to thank PC Williams for his time.
