We currently use EducationCity.com in the school to support learning, which is an online resource with fun activities that will reinforce the learning that takes place in the class.   This year we have the option to allow children access to the site at home, so that they can take part in fun, engaging activities.   You can even print off certificates at home to reward them for tasks accomplished.  Your child should have brought home a letter with their ‘Login’ details, which will allow access to EducationCity.com from any computer (PC or Mac) that has internet access.  Should you not have internet access at home; your child will be able to use the facilities at school, during the morning homework sessions, from 8.30am, or the local library. Should you have any questions regarding EducationCity.com, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.

Online safety advice for parents and carers of young children

The internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children's use of technology can be a challenge, especially if you feel that your children may have better technical skills than you do. However, children and young people still need support and guidance when it comes to managing their lives online and using the internet positively and safely.

For detailed information regarding specific topics such as social networking, online grooming, gaming, downloading etc. visit Childnet’s, Hot topics section site at:


A simple and effective way to get involved with your children and their lives online is through discussion. Below are some conversation starters, which you can use.
