Please find in the image some useful information from National Online Safety with regards to social media and mental health.  Many social media sites have content which may be legal but often harmful to young people, and the algorithms set up by these sites often mean that once a young person views some harmful content, they are then bombarded with more, which can have a negative impact on their mental health.

Please get in touch with the safeguarding team either by calling the school or emailing if you have any concerns about e-safety and your child, and if you believe your child’s safety has been compromised online we would always recommend that you report this to the police.
