  • Online Safety - PEGI Age Ratings: Deciding whether or not a game or movie is suitable for your child/children can be a difficult decision. However, it is useful to know that PEGI Age Ratings can be an extremely useful way of helping you decide. Age ratings are systems used to ensure that entertainment content, such as games, but also films, tv shows or mobile apps, is clearly labelled with a minimum age recommendation based on the content they have. More information about the different ratings and what they mean can be found here: https://pegi.info/what-do-the-labels-mean

 

  • Did you know? Children who read and are read to have a significantly higher chance of economic success in their thirties than their peers who are not read to.

 

  • Please ensure you have ordered your child’s school lunch via SchoolGrid.      Be mindful not to order from the specialist menu’s (halal, gluten-free etc) unless your child has a dietary need.
