Messaging for Junior School Parents

  • The school needs to send a consistent message to Parents
  • There are no legal protections on Social Media owing to underage use 
  • Privacy setting on all social media ‘My friends only’
  • TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram are the most popular social media platforms
  • Using real parental control is a good idea, why trust the kids to enforce it.
  • Profiles use real names and photos. Facebook says fake accounts bully more 5 times more
  • School is allowed to review phones, kids have no right to privacy and should not expect privacy.
  • No Snapmaps, No Ghost mode (very popular features in Snapchat)
  • For very young kids not allowed to watch Professional Youtubers without parental vetting 
  • Social media is not a race, limit followers a child can't possibly have 1,200 friends. Police worldwide say this is a 'No-No'.

What they are saying

Parents and I thought you were engaging; it became apparent when we unmuted our mics, for everyone to share their gratitude. It has since made me consider many more app settings. We will look into sustaining such practical cybersecurity discussions at our school, in a practical and matter-of-fact manner during our co-curricular space. I would be more than happy to give you a recommendation for your service. With appreciation for your engagement, and until next time.

Thanks very much to Graham for delivering a really interesting talk (Zoom) for all the parents of our school. The talk really uncovered and showcased to us all how many of the new Apps that we know are on our children's phones / tablets / playstations, but really didn't know anything about. Many of our parents commented that they were 'shocked' at the revelations but that they now felt better equipped to put measures in place to protect their children online thanks to the advice on this presentation. One of our parents summed it up best, "I just felt that the children, even the youngest ones, were so far ahead of me in terms of what they know about these gadgets, at least now I've caught up, I still haven't passed them out, but I know now how to set the privacy settings which means a lot to me". A very informative, interesting and well run presentation..
