We often have parents ask us for advice about managing screen time and devices at home. All year groups teach a unit of E-safety (digital citizenship) each year, covering topics from how to communicate in an email to how to spot false advertising and stranger danger online.

Your child’s chances of being a stronger (and safer) digital citizen are greatly improved if you are a part of the conversation: setting boundaries and sharing in your child’s online experiences. Apps like Google’s Family Link (other apps are available!) help manage your child’s access and enable you as a parent to monitor and discuss what your child can see online. With the app you can view what your child is seeing, set time limits for apps and devices and point you in the direction of recommended apps (Scratch is particularly recommended by us to support computing lessons).
