Top Tips Parents and carers
These top tips have been written for you (parents and carers) to help you support your child to stay safe and happy online.
Inspire change by modelling how to be safe online
Just like in their offline lives, children need role models online too. Set clear and fair expectations about how the whole family should use the internet and technology, and demonstrate these yourself. A Family Agreement is a great way to start conversations and put your ideas down on paper, to refer back to later and adapt as your child and your family’s internet use changes.
Make a difference by having regular discussions about the online world
Having regular and open conversations with your child about their use of technology and the internet is the best way to stay up to date, not only with changes in the online world, but also with what they are doing and seeing online. Starting these conversations can sometimes feel daunting, but they can help you feel more informed and show your child that you are taking an interest in their online life. Not sure where to begin? Use the tips and conversations starters in our “Let’s Talk About Life Online” resource.
Manage influence by researching the content and games your child enjoys the most
Giving young people the opportunity to talk about their life online, and enjoying online content together, can be a great way to gain an insight into the content they are viewing. Our ‘Parents and Carers Resource Sheet’ is a great tool that you can use to research any websites, apps and games and find out more about specific content.
Navigate change by knowing where to go for further support
If your child needs help, it’s important you know where to go for further support. Using the report and block buttons, websites such as ‘Report Harmful Content’, and other safety tools is a great starting point. It can also be useful to discuss any concerns or worries with your child’s school as they may be able to offer further advice and guidance. It can also help to talk to other parents and carers who may have experienced something similar.

These top tips have been written for you (parents and carers) to share, and talk about, with your children. It’s never too early to talk about life online!
Inspire change by spending time online together
As your child starts to spend more time online and on devices, there will be opportunities for them to interact with others, make decisions and see a wide variety of content. Spending time with your child online together is an important part of them learning how they should behave and what to do if they are ever worried, upset or unsure about something on the internet.
Make a difference by having regular discussions about the online world
As your child learns about the internet, they will likely have lots of thoughts and questions. Having regular discussions with your child gives them opportunities to tell you about the things they like doing online, as well as any concerns and worries they may have. A great time to have these conversations is whilst you are spending time online as a family.
Manage influence by being aware of the different things which engage your child online
Your child might be influenced by a range of different things when online, such as exciting adverts, their favourite characters, and even by their friends. Not all influence online is negative, but it is important to be aware of what is engaging your child online and the impact this could have on them as they get older. Balance online influences with your own and your child’s thoughts by talking about what they see and hear.
Navigate change by having a clear picture of your child’s developing interests
As your child grows up, their interests and hobbies will constantly change, and the things they are doing online are no different. Something they liked yesterday may be something they’ve lost interest in today. It is important to be curious and stay up to date with the games, apps and sites they are using and the safety settings available, so that you can help keep them safe as they start to explore the online world more.
Unfortunately, we have no parking available to parents on our school site. The majority of parents and carers are able to park in Tesco's supermarket car park. However, each year we are grateful to the Church of the Immaculate Conception for allowing a small number of our parents to park in the church car park. Allocation for these spaces is based on a number of strict criteria. You are able to apply in the Summer Term for the next academic year. Application forms are available from the School office and should be returned directly to the Parish office by the first week of August. Please find a PDF copy of the form below, which you can print off at home.

Request for a Leave of Absence During Term Time
There are very few occasions where Headteachers in England are allowed to authorise children to be absent during term time. If you want to take your child out of school for any reason, including medical appointments, you need to complete an absence request form (see below). Please note that if the absence request is not authorised and the holiday is taken the Headteacher may request that the Local Authority issue a Fixed Penalty Notice. This is currently £60 per child per week per parent. This increases to £120 if paid after 21 days, and may result in legal action if 21 and 28 days. I understand that if I do not pay this it may result in legal action.
Scooter/Bicycle Licence Application
Children are able to bring a scooter or bicycle in to school as long as they first apply for a licence. The licence lasts until their last day of primary school, but may be taken away if the safety rules (explained on the form signed by the pupils and parent) are not followed. Please complete the application form and hand it in to the school office. Permits should then be tied to the relevant scooter or bicycle (and can be transferred between both).
Administration of Medicine During School Hours
On occasion, it may be necessary for your child to take medicine, for example antibiotics or Calpol, during the time they are at school. Staff cannot administer any medicine unless we have written permission from a parent. Please complete the appropriate form and hand it in with the appropriate medicine to the school office. Unfortunately, this does not include medicine classed as 'controlled drugs' which cannot be kept on school premises or administered by staff.
