Dear Parent/ Carer, 

Safer Internet Day: 

Safer Internet Day is Tuesday 9th February. Although the internet is a crucial resource at present, enabling learning to continue and supporting positive emotional health by maintaining links with family and friends, it is essential that we teach students how to interact online safely. The following updates will assist you in keeping children safe online.

  • Parent Guides: Information on online topics which may pose risks to children: 

Please let us know if you require any further information on these topics or if you have any specific queries.
