Online Safety Awareness Workshops – Tuesday 29th October

Keeping children safe online is one of our main priorities and is an area of great concern. Many of our children access the internet and social media e.g. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok with no awareness and understanding of the consequences and risks that they put themselves in.

In recent times we have seen a rise in; children who have been targeted by adults online; who have been bullied online; and who have posted inappropriate images and content which have resulted in them being significantly at risk.

Therefore we have asked NSPCC to support our mission by offering online safety workshops for parents. You may feel that you are able to monitor your child’s usage, however, we would strongly advise taking this opportunity to further support you in keeping your child safe.

This workshop is completely free, light refreshments will be provided, and will take place on Tuesday 29th October at 1:30pm and again at 4pm.

Please contact the school office if you wish to attend.

Open Day 3rd October

Sunnyside is opening its doors to parents once again, we are hosting an open afternoon for parents/carers to “drop in” and see learning in classes.

The school open afternoon will take place from 1:45-2:45pm. Parents do not need to stay for the full hour, as this is a drop in and lessons will be taking place as usual.
