If you would like further support, or are concerned about something in particular, then please speak with either Ms Boujettef (Computing Leader), Ms Desmarais (Designated Safeguarding Leader) or Mr Guttridge (Headteacher).

Use a child-friendly web browser
A ‘web browser’ is merely the application we use to view webpages. You may currently use Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer. However, it is possible to download a web browser that is designed for families. These browsers will block certain websites deemed inappropriate. You can even block websites of your choosing, for example Youtube.com. Here is a link to a list of family-friendly web browsers: http://www.bewebsmart.com/ipod-ipad-iphone/kid-safe-browsers/
