E-SAFETY HELP AND ADVICE

Below are a selection of websites and resources which children and parents can use to increase their knowledge of how to stay safe on line.
Please pay particular attention to the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) website at which parents and children can report any concerns they have. We also have a link on our website.
We would recommend parents view this site by the NSPCC which gives in depth information about popular apps which children use and how to keep them safe, including how to effectively operate privacy settings.

But what is SOCKS/SOKS?

Not a lot of parents realise what the SOCKS/SOKS stands for or what they do on behalf of our children. SOCKS is The Support Our Kids Association and with your support in developing and attending fund raising  initiatives we raise money to support children in school e.g we go to the theater in January, we have an Autumn fayre, meals etc!  Without their hard work and your support there is so much in school that we couldn’t do!!
