Just to remind you that the online sites recommended by school and the Dfe are all safe sites. Please make sure you are aware of what your children are accessing and who they may be making contact with. Some of you may have chosen to supplement the school online offer with support from online companies or individual tutors. Please make sure you receive this support from a reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children. There is a lot of support for parents and carers to help keep your children safe online. Please see the list of sites below, we will also be adding these to the parents section of the school website.
