E-Safety

The safety of your children is paramount. Technology is a big part of our lives and we know that children use The Internet during their leisure time as well as for learning. Technology is changing all the time and children often adapt faster to those changes than parents. We feel it is important for parents to remain in control of how their children access technology as well as online resources. 

We run regular parent workshops to make sure the parents keep abreast of any new concerns that we become aware of. The list of links below we feel are a good starting point for parents looking for some guidance on keeping their children safe while allowing them the freedom to embrace and enjoy the technologies on offer.
