Supporting Young People Online
Sexting in Schools
Ever wanted a straight forward guide to the Apps that young people are using? Then see below for an overview of what each current App does and the features it displays. Apps are becoming ever more popular as technology advances and it is important that we keep updated with what young people are using the internet for in order to keep them safe.
If you have any concerns regarding what your child is using Apps for, or require further information, then please contact school and ask to speak to our Safeguarding Lead – Rachel Patchett.
Sevenhills staff are dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people that attend the academy. We work closely with a wide range of external agencies including the Local Safeguarding Children Board. More information about LSCB and the work they do can be found at the link below:
