There is a growing concern around the use of social media and trying to keep up to date with a rapidly changing technological world.  As a school we are trying to address many of these issues through our curriculum and also through assemblies, tutor periods and other special events throughout the year. 

Below are links for parents supporting students using social media, together with some links to tips and available tools to help support mental health matters in School.  We hope you will find them useful.
