Keeping your children safe when using the internet, social media and playing online games

During the summer holidays, without the distraction of school, internet usage for many young people can increase all the way up to September. This guide is designed to help you with a realistic approach to help keep your children safe when using the internet, social media and playing online games.

Safeguarding Update:

It has been brought to the schools attention by the police that there is potentially a new E-Safety threat to students. There is a new computer game called Cunch-Line Chronicles.

The game is centred around County Lines, giving out information about drug running and creating trap houses, it teaches how to set these up and recruit. There is also an online chat facility in the game. There are vulnerability issues here for recruitment, so please be vigilant and report any concerns to the school.

Parents Evening:

The school has introduced a new and easy to use online appointment booking system.

We are confident this will be an improvement to the previous system and welcome any feedback. TO BOOK YOUR PARENTS EVENING APPOINTMENT PLEASE CLICK HERE.

The Parent Perspective - Podcast Series for Parents/Carer

“The Parent Perspective” is an exciting podcast series for parents and carers, helping them to support their children with careers advice and guidance. Series 3 is bigger and better than ever, led by our brilliant new host, Rachel Burden!

Together with Not Going to Uni, we want to make sure that we are supporting parents to feel informed and confident in providing careers support and guidance to their child, so that they ultimately make the best decisions for them.

Through the podcast Rachel and guests offer a fun and informative space for listeners to:

  • Explore which careers are available today
  • Showcase the experiences of interesting and diverse role models
  • Provide real-time insights into how the world of work is changing

Each episode Rachel speaks to a diverse mix of parents, bringing their burning questions to expert speakers from the careers world. Together they uncover practical solutions and informative answers, to help you and your child make informed decisions on those all important next steps.
