Age Limits on APPs and Games!

As a school, we do all we can to keep children safe whilst using the internet and through our curriculum give them knowledge and skills to help keep themselves safe and build digital resilience. We cannot do it without your support at home too, we really appreciate you working with us and reinforcing these messages and skills at home.

We all want the best for children and it is really important that children are protected from unsuitable online content and have a healthy balance between screen time and other activities. The digital world became a huge part of our lives during the lockdowns and it is really important to acknowledge how many positives there are to our digital lives, but it is also important to have a balance.

As well as parental controls and internet filters it is so important that you monitor how much time your child spends on digital devices. It is a good idea to set up a timetable/rota to clearly identify where your child is allowed screen time.  Where possible, ensure that your child remains in the room with you at all times, during their allocated screen time. Please make sure that you are aware of what your child is accessing whilst online and have relevant parental controls or protection in place on PCs, laptops, phones and tablets and also on streaming services on TV and games consoles.
