Mobile Phones

We are seeing more and more children with their own mobile phone.  These can be very useful, but our experience in school is that children can make mistakes and use them inappropriately.  We encourage all parents to carefully supervise their child's phone use and to talk to them about how to use their phone in a healthy, positive and kind way.

There are lots of resources available to help parents to support their children in using online technology safely and appropriately.  We have added several useful documents to this page.
