During our Safer Internet Week, there were many discussions with the children about games and apps that they were using online.
Whilst there were some fantastic uses being shared, it has been drawn to our attention that many children are playing games, accessing apps or watching videos on youtube which are NOT age appropriate.
We would urge all parents to check carefully what your child is using – even play the game/watch the video with them so that you can see the content that they are watching and to decide if you are happy with them using these.
Further useful resources regarding ‘Balancing Screen Time’ can be found below for your information.
