Now more than ever, it is vital to ensure that your child is safe online. As usage of social media and apps
increase, so too do the dangers of unsolicited attention. It is important that all children know how to keep
safe online, how to recognise risks, harmful content and contact and are aware of how to report such
incidents. There are lots of websites to offer parents and guardians support on how to ensure what your
child accesses online is safe and age-appropriate. Some suggested web links are below.
The Love Exploring app has been a valuable tool in enabling families to explore the city and encouraging them to be active following the easing of lockdown restrictions, with 5,000+ users now in Leeds. An inter-school competition focused on Love Exploring is planned for 2022, and there is a limited-time-only Halloween trail with dancing skeletons and zombies to explore in locations across the city, for half term and bonfire night. The Dinosaur Safari is also still on offer in 10 parks. As part of the evaluation process of Love Exploring, app users are encouraged to complete a short survey about their experiences. The survey offers an opportunity to win a £50 prize draw and earn £20 for taking part in a phone interview.
