This month, I am sharing an extract from the latest Online Safety Newsletter from Dorset Police’s Safe Schools and Communities Team. If you have a child at Twynham, I feel sure you will already have heard something about Fortnite. The following article is taken from this newsletter and a link to the full version is included below.
This latest newsletter also includes some valuable advice on what to do if your child is being bullied online. We will always try to support you and your child, particularly if the online behaviour is linked to issues in school with other students. We can also offer support in helping you to engage with social media platforms when it comes to getting offensive material removed. Ultimately, if you feel your child is being threatened, we will recommend police intervention. However, many situations that come to light are often more regular friendship issues that are common amongst teenagers and those involved have often moved on in less time than it takes for us to intervene, which can be somewhat frustrating, although we are always pleased when issues are resolved positively.
