Online Safety

Advice for Parents and Carers


At Didsbury High School student safety is central to our safeguarding and welfare ethos and this extends to online safety when using the internet and social networking sites.

We aim to ensure our students understand how to keep safe when using technology by identifying the associated dangers and what to do when they are concerned. Parents and carers have a crucial role in supporting the school with this – through a shared understanding of responsible use of technology we can advise and safeguard our students online.

These pages offer advice and guidance for keeping young people safe online. There are also links below for further support on how to keep them safe on specific apps and sites which are popular with students.
