In-game chat: How to keep children safe

Video games are among the most — if not THE most — popular entertainment medium for young people, and children are graduating to online gaming at ever earlier ages. With voice chat, online games like Fortnite and FIFA are evolving into social spaces where children meet with their friends — and make new ones.

It can be great fun - but it's important that parents are aware how to manage the associated risks. Have a read of our latest advice for parents on how to keep their children safe when using in-game chat functions.

The pupils of Parkhill, class 3A have attended a week of training and awareness courses covering many aspect of fire safety.

The Purpose of Fire Reach

The purpose of Fire Reach is to provide training and development opportunities for young people, principally through Fire & Rescue Service related activities.   Young people will be encouraged to make the most of their physical and mental capabilities to enable them to become more responsible, safer and caring members of their communities. It is anticipated that with their commitment, regular attendance and the completion of all aspects of a range of modules, Fire Reach will raise the young people's awareness of the role of the Fire & Rescue Service, the local authority and other linked agencies within their community.

Parkhill school has a long tradition of success winning and keeping green flags.    We currently have 4 of them.

  Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).  It connects 15 million children, young people and educators through sustainable development education and is the biggest learning network in the world.  

Eco-Schools is an international initiative designed to  encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability.  It is an environmental management tool, a learning resource and a recognised award scheme which empowers children and young people to take action towards an economically, socially and environmentally just world.  

The initiative provides a framework for learning and action which affords a wealth of  opportunities for linking sustainable development education, global citizenship and outdoor learning. Eco-Schools weaves these elements together through the everyday curricular work undertaken by schools and encourages closer links between schools and the communities around them.


Where did Eco-Schools come from?
At the UN Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Earth Summit) in 1992, a need to involve young people in finding solutions to sustainable development challenges was identified.  

The Eco-Schools programme was developed in 1994 by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), and introduced into the UK (including Scotland), in 1995.  

There are now 63 countries on all five continents participating in the Eco-Schools programme. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is very supportive of the programme and is an institutional partner of FEE, as is the Scottish Government.

The Eco-Schools Programme in Scotland
The Eco-Schools programme is managed in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful.  

Keep Scotland Beautiful is the leading provider of sustainable development education initiatives in schools, encouraging action and behavioural change by young people which will leave an enduring legacy for Scotland; it is part of its work to help make Scotland clean and green, today and tomorrow.
