February 28 Newsletter

Be a CyberSmart Parent

ALERT - Social Media and your child - Be a Cyber Smart Parent

Students at Margate are on social media sites that they are not meant to be on as they are too young.

SnapChat, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, Twitter, Instagram are only for children 13 years and older. Even YouTube is meant to be for 18 year plus!

It is very important that you check the devices in your home (phones, iPads, computers) so you are aware of what social media your child is accessing. It is also important to check whether they are using your social media with their own log in. There are parental blocking programs that you can use.

Detailed information can be found on these government websites:
