 Apps and Age Limits

After discussing with each class, the types of apps and games children played at home, we have compiled a list with more information on age limits. This list is a mixture of all the ages. Many of the children were playing and accessing content totally suitable for their age group, but it was clear to see in older classes that there was more Social Media and older rated games being accessed and played.

We will add to and update this list as needed. We hope it helps.
