E-Safety and Social Networking

We want to support parents and carers to understand online risks children may be vulnerable to and to support parents to keep their child safe.

As such we are planning to include regular features in our newsletters and will add them to this document so that they are all in one place.

We have archived the feature into one document which you can view here: https://bit.ly/3R3RGAq
