Parents and Carers
Many issues that arise online can be quickly and simply solved by talking with both parties involved. Please feel free to contact the school and meet with you pupils teacher if your child is having issues with other pupils online so that we can help. These will be dealt with in accordance to our ICT policy and AUAs (links can be found at the bottom of this page).
