E-Safety Guidance

We do as much as we can at Gretton to educate our young people about the dangers they are facing and what they can do to stay safe.

Supporting parents to do the same is important to us so please get in touch if you have any concerns or questions.

We would like to draw your attention to a teen drama called 13 Reasons Why(pdf), available online, which tells the story of 17-year-old high school student who commits suicide.

Please also see the latest update from Childnet International regarding ‘Snapchat’ and their new feature ‘Snap Maps‘.  Please ensure that you and your children follow the guidance regarding who can see your location.
