Digital parenting – a brave new world?

It has been amazing to see how creative students and staff have become in delivering learning opportunities remotely at this time.  We have all been inspired and learnt new skills to support students, both in school and at home, to make the most of the resources they have at hand to support their progress and development.

We are mindful, however, that this has resulted in young people and their families having greater amounts of screen time and relying on technology for connections to learning, work and wider social interation.

We have provided some links we hope parents may find useful when supporting young people and their online activities.
