E-SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR HOME
With the introduction of devices into the school we are very aware of keeping our students safe from accessing inappropriate material. To prevent this we have very strong internet filters operating at school. However, these filters only work while children are connected to the school network (internet) during school time. They do not extend to home networks /internet.
To help your child be CyberSmart on your home network (internet) read our tips HERE.

Have you heard about our 'A Million Dreams' initiative?
A Million Dreams was launched as a way of providing our children with access to a rich range of experiences, resources and inspirational people. A team of teachers and parents seek out a range of options each term, covering sports, culture, the arts, academics, career paths and passions. These are advertised to the children on the Million Dreams websiteand shared with the children. The children are encouraged to put themselves forward for options that will help them to grow personally and align with their interests, passions and skills. Through a simple application process, the children take ownership for going after these experiences and being proactive in seeking out opportunities for themselves. The pride they feel when they are successful is incredible!
As a school we are open to discussing any particular concerns or positive feedback you have. If you have any concerns regarding your child's learning, your first port of call is your child’s Teacher, and following this the VLC Team Leader. If you feel your concerns have not been adequately addressed then the Principal or Leadership Group are happy to meet with you to ensure a solution is achieved. If your concern relates to school policy or programmes, then contact the Leadership Group. In this instance please call the office to make an appointment.
