Welcome to the Parent's Pages

The Internet is a vital and wonderful resource that can encourage young and old alike to explore, learn, interact, create and contribute. Increasingly, children are accessing the Internet in a myriad of ways, from pcs and laptops to game-console, mobile phone, iPads and more. Many parents however, feel left behind as their children know more about the Internet and digital technologies than they do. Parents do however, have an important role to play in their children's Internet use. Whilst they may not be technologically savvy, they have wisdom about the world, which is invaluable. This real world wisdom can be used to guide their children when they use the Internet and digital technologies.
