Amazing new app!

I’m delighted to inform you of the release of the first EVER Online Safety app in the UK aimed for Parents and Educators. The app – Online Safety UK – is free to download and available for both Apple and Android devices.

The OSUK app provides access to a wide variety of resources regarding a large range of apps and games providing information, pros and cons, setting time limits, parent controls, age restrictions and hidden features etc.

Quite shockingly, a recent study (Kaspersky, 2019) found that parents only spends an average total of 43 minutes discussing online safety with their child across their entire childhood – let’s be the driving force in increasing this time and provide our children with the best knowledge and awareness of the online world when spending ever growing amounts of time engaging in it.

Local food support when you’re in need

A fantastic new food service from Growing Places, based at Mill Hill Primary on Mill Road, is now available to support families who may be struggling a little with financing food for all the family. For just £5, you can access the Community Larder, supported by FareShare, and take a large bag-for-life and fill it to the brim with food items of your choice. The flyer below details the times that the service is available on Thursdays and Saturdays. There is no need to book an appointment, simply turn up and take your pick for just £5.

We understand how many families have faced adversity and significant life changes over the course of this turbulent year so make use of the friendly, non-judgemental and welcoming support from Growing Places to alleviate some of the added pressures of life we are facing in these ever changing times.
