Thanks to The Girls’ day school who have produced this brilliant series of clips 

My Digital, a unique video series to help you and your children to stay safe online. The series consists of six short films for parents and six matching films for children to empower your family to use social media safely and responsibly.

The videos look at the ways in which the internet and digital technology can be used positively by young people as well as identifying the potential issues they may face.

They cover the most critical themes in online safety today including:

  • Cyberbullying
  • The digital footprint
  • Identity and self-esteem
  • Relationships and grooming
  • Security and privacy
  • Sexting

We hope that the films, together with the downloadable online safety factsheets, will help encourage and support open discussions in your family about how to enjoy the online environment whilst staying safe.

The series has been produced in partnership with Digital Awareness UK, a leading online safety organisation.
