At Salfords Primary School we regularly talk to the children about e-safety and how to stay safe online. If your child does use social media, or other communications online, we would recommend talking with your child about e-safety and would encourage you to monitor their online activity.
Help children stay safe online:
1. Have the conversation early and often
2. Explore online together
3. Know who your child is talking to online
4. Set rules and agree boundaries
5. Make sure that content is age-appropriate
6. Use parental controls to filter, restrict, monitor or report content
7. Check they know how to use privacy settings and reporting tools

Reporting Harmful Content
The following is a link to a website that gives information on how to “Report Harmful Content”.
There has been an increase in fake TikTok accounts using school logos and teacher names which can be reported using the impersonation tab. Impersonation is “when someone assumes the identity of another person, to harass or defraud them. It can also include behaviours such as creating fake accounts, or hijacking accounts usually with the intent of targeting an individual.
The website also shows how to report threats, harassment and bullying, self-harm and suicide content, online abuse, violent content, unwanted sexual advances and pornographic content for a wide variety of Apps. The links take users to the App’s own reporting system but If anything harmful has not been taken down after 48 hours of reporting then a report can be submitted to the Report Harmful Content website using screenshots.
