Virgin Media have launched handy tools to help parents of web-ready kids stay ahead of the curve, including ‘Switched on Families’ and Internet Matters’ https://www.virginmedia.com/shop/broadband/parental-control
Attached below are the School and School360’s Acceptable Use Policies which we recommend you revisit with your children to assist with their online safety.

Always ensure that you know what your child is experiencing whilst on the internet. Many thanks.
