Online Safety

Online Safety

At TCC, we are very proud of our students and the effort they have shown in completing their independent learning. We are equally proud of our students’ resilience in the face of the challenging circumstances lockdown presents us all with.

During this time of school closure, I wanted to ensure you are supported and signposted towards useful information regarding online safety, as well as some useful resources you can work through with your children. 

The link below is a useful guide about how to keep your child safe online while they are off school. While school is closed, here’s what you can do to help keep your child safe while they are learning, staying in touch with family and friends, and having fun online.

Also, the two links below have been created to support parents during Covid-19 and the closure of schools. Each fortnight, the Thinkuknow website will be releasing new home activity packs with simple 15 minute activities you can do with your child to support their online safety at home. The page includes all packs for students in years 7-9 (the first link, ages 11-13) and students in years 10+ (the second link, ages 14+). The content is quite stark but is informative, reliable and from a highly credible source.

Also, below are links to the TCC website’s online safety section, which contains a range of links to help signpost you towards useful information regarding online safety; as well as a link to net-aware – an excellent guide to popular apps/games/websites and how to ensure our young people are safe.
