Protecting your children online
The best way to protect your child online is to be informed and involved. Talking about your child’s internet use and sharing time online together will allow you to check that your child is using the internet and social media appropriately for their age (many social media sites have an age restriction of 13). It will also provide opportunities for your child to discuss any activity that has puzzled or upset them.
If you have any questions please speak to your child's class teacher or Mr Mills.
Below we have provided links to some of the websites available to give parents/carers advise on how to approach internet safety.

Age Restrictions for Social Media
We understand that children, especially in Year 6, may wish to bring a mobile phone to school if they are walking home. Children may bring a mobile to school but they must hand it in to the office when they arrive at school. Mobile phones are strictly not allowed to be used in school. Children can collect their mobile from the office at the end of the school day. A mobile phone agreement must also be signed.
