Home A-Z Contents List Back to Family Room

 

This page contains links to potentially useful internet sites.  The internet is a virtually limitless educational resource.  It must, however, be used carefully.  At school we have very powerful filtering software to ensure the quality of the material we access.  At home this may not be available.  Like all good home learning internet use is best done with, or at least directly monitored by, a responsible adult.  Children should remember to NEVER give their email address to anyone on the net.

Health Warning
We have tried to find some good starting points for web working with the children.  Please remember, however, that the web is exactly that.  Every site is linked to other sites (just as ours is) and once you leave our site it is simply impossible for us to check every link that might be made.  Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the suitability of the sites listed we cannot accept responsibility for any site managed by others or for the links it may contain.  If you find that one of these links is no longer active please let me know and I will remove it.
