  Online Safety:

In the current climate of social distancing we understand that children will be potentially using the internet and social media more than ever before. It is vitally important then that you remind your child/ren about the e-safety learning they would have completed at school. Please talk to your child about how the rules of bullying are just as important when using social media or messaging through online games via Xbox and playstation. If you have any concerns about messages that your child is receiving from other pupils, please do not erase the messages and contact the school.
