Looking After Your Well-being Online

Dear Parents and Carers,

The online world and digital technology have become such a significant part of our lives – and integral to many aspects of our daily routine – that we shouldn’t be surprised at the degree of influence they can wield over what we think and feel. Young people’s online experiences are hugely positive and uplifting … but sadly, that’s not always the case.

Adverse incidents online – such as disagreements with other users, stumbling across upsetting content or feeling left out by friends – can intensely damage a child’s emotional state. The attached poster has some valuable tips for young people and trusted adults on how even small, simple actions can help to protect our well-being when we are on the internet.

Many Thanks,

Tiann Madden (Headteacher)
