Local Support and Information
London Borough of Redbridge has a website full of information for families. This includes information about childcare, financial advice, things to do locally and how to get support if your child has Special Educational Needs.
We are always alert to the sites and apps children are using. One of the biggest concerns at Gilbert Colvin and in many primary schools is children using apps which have age restrictions.
One example of this is WhatsApp which should not be used by under 16's. Most of the online problems we deal with are around children being unkind online in group chats. Although this takes place outside school we educate children about the impact of unkind online behaviour and we always address issues when they arise.
