It is extremely important that your child is safe online and we want to be sure that you know that they are accessing what they need to but not interacting online with individuals and websites/apps that they shouldn't be.
 
Parents and carers may choose to supplement your child's school work with support from online companies and in some cases individual tutors. We would like to emphasise the importance of securing online support from a reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children.
 
Other useful advice and guidance for parents/carers and young people is available from these organisations. Parents/carers are recommended to access this information so that you are informed and supported in keeping your children and young people safe online.
