Social media advice for parents and guardians
Many children and young people are using social media platforms to keep in touch with friends. However, with increased time online comes increase risk, so it is important we talk to children and young people to ensure they know the risks online, and where to go for help and support when needed.
There are two documents attached to raise awareness of the issues and offer advice- please click HERE and HERE.
Free School Meals and Coronavirus
For those children entitled to Free School Meals, please check ParentMail for communications sent out in respect of your vouchers and access to the Summer Food Fund.
