Other Useful Links for Parents

These are all external links so we hope that they will be reliable. Please make sure that you have parental settings in place and, while we don’t think any of these sites require in-app purchases, it’s good practice to make sure you have measures in place to prevent these.

Most of these sites do not require you to log-in (or a school log-in has already been created). For other sites, if you choose to create an account for your child(ren): please make them anonymous (use an unidentifiable user name); make passwords secure (mix of capitals and lowercase, numbers, special characters eg @!); do not use their photo as a profile picture and make a careful note of their log-in details.

Dance Mat Typing - Please make sure your child is using all of their fingers - listen to Garry Goat and put their pointy fingers on the bumps on *F* and *J* and spread their other fingers out onto *asd* and *kl;*"... elbows by their sides, back straight, feet on the floor.
