In our Internet acceptable use policy, we ask all students to set their profiles to "protected", "locked" or "friends only" and set up maximum privacy. To help your young person do this on the sites they use, follow the links below. Be aware that the minimum age for all of these sites is 13.
- Twitter (be aware Twitter policies and features have recently been changing rapidly and at short notice - if your young person has a Twitter account, be sure to revisit privacy settings regularly)
