Starting secondary school

At secondary school, your child will be spending more time online.  Staying Safe Online is a very readable guide to the possibilities and dangers on the internet, while the Growing Up books are frank and friendly guides for teenagers as they embark on puberty. To help them with their homework there are stylish illustrated dictionaries.
