Friendly Schools and Families

FRIENDLY SCHOOLS PLUS

Recently our Junior School ILT Integration Specialist (Mrs Ritchie) organised for ySafe to visit the school in order to educate students, staff and parents about cyber safety. Below I have demonstrated a checklist ySafe created to help parents improve on cyber safety in the home. They suggested parents reword these statements as questions to ask their children or as part of an agreement the child would sign should they be requesting to use/own a mobile phone.

I AGREE THAT I WILL:

  • Answer the phone if my family calls

  • Text or call back right away if it's missed

  • Turn my phone off where required (e.g. school)

  • Let you know if I see anything that makes me feel uncomfortable
  • Ask for permission to purchase apps or for in­app purchases

  • Keep my phone safe, in good condition and covered

  • Give it back if requested

  • Let you know the passwords / PINs

I AGREE THAT I WILL NEVER:

  • Message or post anything I wouldn't say in front of you

  • Take or share inappropriate pictures of me or anyone else
  • Use it during sleeping hours (other than in an emergency)
  • Use my phone at the dinner table

  • Change or disable settings applied by you

  • Remove apps installed by you
