How can I find out which websites and apps are appropriate for my kids?
Have you checked out Net Aware? The website has been created by the NSPCC and O2 to help parents see what sites, apps and games are popular, why young people like them, and how safe they are.
Internet Matters can also help you to find out more about what your children might be doing online and give you some simple, practical and easy advice on the steps you can take as a parent to keep them as safe as possible.
Who should I talk to if I'm not happy about the amount of homework my child is set?
If you have an issue or concern that relates to your child, then you shouldn't hesitate to approach the school directly. The first point of contact will usually be your child's class teacher or form tutor.
It's in everybody's best interests that any issues are resolved as quickly as possible, our guidance is designed to help you handle concerns and complaints confidently.
