What Parents/Carers Need to Know about Age-innapropriate Content
“Inappropriate” means different things to different people. What’s acceptable for one age group, for example, may be unsuitable for a slightly younger audience. Online, young people can chance upon inappropriate content in various way – from pop-up ads to TikTok videos. The increasingly young age at which children become active in the digital world heightens the risk of them innocently running into something that they find upsetting or frightening. Trusted adults need to be able to help children be aware of what to do if they’re exposed to age-inappropriate content.
In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as social media, gaming and adverts.

Safer Internet Day 2019
Safer Internet Day 2019 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 5th February 2019. Our Year 6 Digital Leaders started our preparations for Safer Internet Day (SID) with a special assembly for our Key Stage 2 pupils and staff on Monday 4th February. This year's theme in the UK is 'Our Internet, our choice - Understanding consent in a digital world'. Well done Dieudonne, Kai, Mia, Essey, Jada, Jeremiah and Jonathan.
Mrs Claridge and two of our Digital Leaders led the assembly for Foundation Stage and Key Stage pupils on Safer Internet Day. The story of Zap and Zoom helped the pupils to think about making good choices when online so we can look after ourselves and other people.
