On Tuesday 19th January almost 50 parents and staff from both the Infant and Junior schools gathered to learn more about how to keep our children safe online. Leon Pietrzak shared valuable tips and resources on how to manage settings on smartphones, tablets and other internet enabled devices and stay in the game as our children grow up in the digital world.
