Online Safety for Parents / Carers
Parent / Carers' Guides for Online Safety
We are proud to be a National Online Safety certified school and we know that children love being online. The internet is a fun, exciting, sociable and engaging place. However, the internet also has its dangers. Young people seem to be rich in knowledge surrounding technology and it can be difficult to keep track as our children explore the online world.
Whatever they are doing, our parent guides (updated regularly) will help you keep your children safe as they navigate the online world. Share these guides with your children. Start an online safety conversation today.

How to Clean Devices - Advice and Tips
We are all aware (especially given the current circumstances) how important it is to be aware of cleanliness and personal hygiene. We have much advice about hand washing but it is also important that we think carefully about how we clean and disinfect surfaces and objects. Not many people are aware that this is especially important with our electronic devices. Take a look at our guide to cleaning devices (and some 'dos' and 'don'ts).
