Young people today are immersed in a digital world. The power of digital media to explore, connect, create, and learn is part of our culture. With this power, young people have fantastic opportunities and yet they face many potential pitfalls. As a school, we are proactive in sharing advice and guidance with our school community, illustrating both the positive and negative aspects associated with being digital. We explore the consequences of our actions and the ramifications associated with: cyberbullying, digital cheating, identity, self- image, digital footprint, communication and internet safety. We understand that it is essential for all to have the necessary skills to be able to manage the online world.
These safety and security concerns underpin the need for children and young people to learn digital literacy and citizenship skills and to support pupils to act responsibly and to use the internet in a safe and positive way.
