 Thank you again to our parents and carers who attended the workshop below.  We are pleased that they found it useful and gave us such positive feedback.  Please see below for some of the comments:
 
"Today I learnt about age restrictions on social media websites and I would definitely make changes at home following this training"
 
"I would recommend this training to other parents and carers as it was very interesting"
 
"I am now going to look at changing the privacy setting on my children's tablets"
 
"It made me realise the dangers online, such as predators, which I was not aware of"
 
"The gaming world needs a shake up with their aging groups and I will be checking games and internet settings"
 
"It opened up my thinking about age descriptions on games compared to how we see DVD's etc"
 
"Everything was really useful"
 
Following the training there was a request for us to supply suitable websites with age indicators for our children to use.  We are currently putting together a list for everyone and we will publish it on here soon.
