Dear families,

I hope that you can take a few moments to read this latest online safety newsletter. Worthy of note is the reminder that many of the well used apps online are not suitable for children until they are thirteen years of age. So many young people are currently experiencing poor mental wellbeing and increasing amounts of research is showing that this is due to endless hours accessing social media apps and all the negativity it can bring.  Many of our students had their first mobile phone in the summer prior to their transition to TGS. If the contract is due for renewal soon, is it worth considering a less connected phone to support stronger mental wellbeing whilst still being able to contact people when they need to? 

Wishing everyone a relaxing Easter break.

Kind regards
