New technology and devices offer a huge range of opportunities for our students.  They can use them to learn, create and communicate in an ever growing number of ways. Today, especially to young adults, how you are perceived in the digital world is as important as the real world.

Our natural desire is to keep children safe and this can only be done through the education and support we can all offer them.

It is important that parents are equally able to guide and support their children in the online world so that they enjoy the benefits whilst avoiding the potential risks.

This page therefore aims to support you, as parents,with advice, resources and guidance.
