Online Safety Post

YouTube is a video-sharing social media platform that allows billions of people around the world to watch, share and upload their own videos with a vast range of content – including sport, entertainment, education and lots more.

It’s a superb space for people to consume content that they’re interested in. As a result, this astronomically popular platform has had a huge social impact: influencing online culture on a global scale and creating new celebrities.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as connecting with strangers, inappropriate content and high visibility.

Please remember that YouTube Kids was created to give children a more contained environment that makes it simpler and more fun for young children to explore on their own, and easier for parents/carers to guide their journey as they discover new and exciting interests along the way. Please download YouTube Kids onto devices which children are using - you can always support children become more safety conscious on the full YouTube App by using the safety guide attached to this post.

On Tuesday, 8th February we will be marking Safer Internet Day at school with a range of engaging learning opportunities for children here in school. We will also continue to send out useful information for parents/carers supporting you to keep your families safe online.
