Parent Guide to Persuasive Design and Screen Addiction

With the summer holidays fast approaching we would like to signpost the following information for parents and carers. Ofcom have recently raised concerns over children spending more time "than ever before" on screens. 
As a school we understand that electronic devices are extremely popular and can provide positive learning and recreational experiences. However, we do encourage moderation in screen time use as part of a healthy lifestyle. 
The parent guides produced by the National Online Safety organisation provide you will information on persuasive design, which can lead to screen addiction in children, and information on how to set up parental controls on your child's device.
If you would like any further support or advice from school regard keeping your child safe online over the summer holidays, please contact us and we will arrange a call back before the end of term.
