We hope that these resources are useful to all, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.

Family Learning Links Update

It is important to recognise that not all of us are confident in subject areas such as maths, numeracy and digital skills. With that in mind we have put together some free online resources to help support adult literacy and numeracy.

We have also added new resources to support you in developing family learning activities.

These resources can now be found here: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/cl/sunnysideprimary/forms-and-information/parent-and-carer-guides/maths-and-literacy-games-for-home-learning/
