"Nearly half of children in the UK (41%) set their social networking profiles so that they are visible to anyone and many (43%) claim that their parents don't set rules for social networking" (Source: Ofcom Social Networking Report, April 2008).
For many young people, internet, mobile and other new technologies are simply a fact of life. And, because these technologies have developed so quickly, young people have come up with their own strategies for managing their digital spaces - often with little or no input from parents, teachers or other adults.
We all have an important role to play in encouraging young people to use new technology positively, responsibly and safely. E-safety is embedded within the curriculum at Hampton Gardens. We would like to share as much information with parents and students so have included the some useful links for you below.
