e-safety - children using the internet & social media

With the rise of apps, games, tablets, smart phones and social networking sites, parents often ask us for advice about setting boundaries in their child's digital world.
 
We are committed to safeguarding our pupils and supporting parents so that they can help their children to make the most of digital technology and deal with the challenges that can arise. 
 
Every year we hold an e-Safety Information Evening for parents. The presentation slides from the most recent event can be accessed below along with other useful documents and guidance for parents.
