Parenting support 

We do lots of work at St Edmunds around  bullying and online safety and what this looks like to a child.

Here is some support around bullying behaviour for parents to read through to ensure your children are safe online.

Please speak to your children around friendships and falling out and how this is different to bullying.

If your child/children feel they are being bullied online please use this document for support and let the school know as soon as possible. 

We can support your children in school with such issues but we are unable to deal with these issues out of school.

Please speak with and support your children if this is happening out side of the school 

Anything you notice can help a child at risk.

We all have a role to play in protecting children and young people from child abuse and neglect.

Many people do not act because they’re worried about being wrong.

You don’t have to be absolutely certain; if you’re concerned a child is being abused or their safety is at risk, speak to someone.

Following these simple steps and reporting your concerns to your local council could provide the missing piece of information that is needed to keep a child safe.

Child abuse. If you think it, report it.




At St Edmunds we really value the importance of teaching our children how to be safe both online and in the ‘real world’.

We also appreciate the opportunity to share ideas and talk to parents about this.

Did you know about ‘Youtube Kids’ 

This is specifically for children and they can only access appropriate videos on it. A couple of parents said they used this and it worked well. It can be found via google.

Parental controls and filters

These are vital in order to safeguard your children. The NSPCC works in collaboration with O2 to help parents set these up. You can phone them for advice on 0808 800 5002 and they will talk you through how to ensure all your parental settings and controls are in place. Some parents have used this and found it to be very useful.

It’s important to note that new challenges are arising on the internet all the time. This guided has been created to raise awareness of the issue and offer advice on helping parents to talk to their children about making safer decisions online. 

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual, emotional and physical abuse of children.

TIKTOK is a online app that is a global video community where users create, share and discover ‘funny and memorable moments’ via short video clips.

Please be aware that children need to be 13 yrs and over to use this app.

Some of the outfits and dance moves in videos can be overtly sexual and provocative. There have also been reports of some users sharing concerning content, such as videos that promote anorexia, porn, self-harm and violence. If your child’s profile is open, strangers can use the app to comment on your child’s videos


TikTok lets users lip-sync to their favourite songs and produce their own music videos. Some of the music choices contain swear words or sexual themes, So not only can children be exposed to potentially inappropriate content but they can broadcast themselves miming or singing these lyrics


Its a parents responsibility to ensure your children are safe online - school can educate your children to be safe online but do not have responsibility for the apps they download and how they are used.

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in
the world, with more than 1.5 billion people in more than
180 countries using it to send and receive text, photos,
videos and documents, as well as make voice and video
calls through an Internet or Wi-Fi connection.

Since May 2018, the minimum age for using WhatsApp is 16 years old if you live in the European Union, including the UK. WhatsApp has not yet stated whether it
will take action against anyone aged between 13 and 16 who already hold accounts under the old terms and conditions.

Cyberbullying is the act of sending threatening or taunting,text messages, voice messages, pictures and videos, with the aim to hurt and humiliate the receiver. The group chat and group video call features are great for multiple people to chat simultaneously, but there is the potential for people to hurt others with their comments or jokes. The ‘only admin’ feature gives the admin of a group chat greater control over who can send messages.
