In this time of everything being online, and a huge array of different social media sites/ apps, why not download an app that means you can monitor and restrict time/ sites your child uses? Go to the Apple app store or Google play to download - simple to use and easy to monitor! It also means you can check for anything inappropriate or any types of cyber-bullying. One that our staff use is 'Screen Time', but others can be found HERE 

Also, the NSPCC has a site called NETAWARE, which allows you to put in any app, game or social media and see what rating it is and what you should be mindful of

The Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB), a partnership of agencies who work together to prevent child abuse and neglect, have launched a campaign & video to raise awareness that: keeping children safe is everybody’s business’.  (CLICK here to go to their website)

The campaign focuses on raising community awareness of what to do if you are worried about a child and most importantly to encourage members of the public to call Birmingham City Council’s Children’s Advice & Support Service to report their concerns, so action can be taken to safeguard and protect the child.
