The Department for Education has re-issued some advice for parents and carers on cyberbullying. First published in 2014, it provides advice and information about how they can protect their child from cyberbullying and how to tackle it if it happens. With all that we see in the news about the pressures young people can face through cyberbullying, any advice like this is to be welcomed. The document is in sections, with some very detailed information in places....but well worth talking through in your family.

The article has embedded links which (using the ctrl key and mouse left click together) opens a link to another website. Most online services offer some safety features that can help you manage access to age-inappropriate content, report concerns or protect privacy. It is a good idea to think about the sites and services your family uses, and check out which features these sites have that might be helpful for you. Talk to your children and make sure they know how to use the tools on the sites and services they use.
For example: The Parent Zone website (click on this LINK) offers TOP TIPS if your child is being bullied.
