Foxwood would like to recommend a new phone app and website called ‘Own It’ from the BBC.
The app gives advice and videos on E-safety and mental health issues.
A really useful addition is that it can adapt the keypad on children’s devices giving suggestions on the content of messages.
If a child gives out personal information the keyboard will suggest that they don’t. If a child says something unkind the keyboard will help them with suggestions and if they mention key words like bullying the keypad will direct them to help.
All useful in this ever changing world!
Just a reminder that we do have a school mobile app that you can download on to your smartphones and tablet devices free from either the Apple or Google Play app stores. You can download the app by searching for “School Jotter” once downloaded you can then select Foxwood Academy from the drop down list.
The app provides instant access to term dates, menus, events, links to social media and the school website. We hope that you find it useful.
