Periodically we are sent information and useful contacts for parents on common teenage issues. We will update this article as we receive them.
Please remember that if you have a concern regarding your child, do not hesitate to contact the Form Tutor, Head of Year, or myself. Counsellors are in school three days a week and we can also give you contact details of other professionals that can support you and your child outside school.

SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION EVENING
- E-Safety and Cyber-enabled Crime
We have been informed by the county specialist child exploitation social worker of a link to a computer programme to monitor children's use of social network sites. She says that parents who have used this have found it useful to check whether inappropriate content has been viewed or if strangers have tried to make contact with their child via the internet. It can be used for multiple devices in the home and the parent can have a phone app that alerts them to any unsafe internet activity. www.socialshield.com
