IMPORTANT GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS
Snapchat has launched a new update for their social media app with a new ‘Meet Up’ feature. This feature located within the SnapMap section of the app allows for people to view your location and get precise directions to you via Google or Apple maps without any warning or notifications.
Guidance for parents would be to check your children’s accounts.
- Ensure they only have friends added to their account
- Their account is restricted with the correct settings
- Their snap map location is set to ‘Only Me’
And you regularly check your children’s phone to ensure all of the above are being stuck too.
Please share with families, friends, schools and the wider community.
Internet Safety at The Heys
At The Heys Primary School there are robust procedures in place to ensure the safe use of the internet and other electronic media in school. Please read our E-Safety policy below.
The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But it is also important to remember to keep SAFE on the Internet.
Sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like. If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault.
TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you.
They can help you to report it at CEOP.
