Digital Safety

Children and young people are growing up in a world where digital technology is everywhere.  It is essential that we teach young people the benefits of technology such as smartphones, apps and computers, and also make them aware of how to stay safe online. 

If students are concerned about activities online or on phones, they need to tell a trusted adult.  We cannot help students if we do not know what is happening.  Contact your child's Pastoral Manager if you have any concerns, or you can use the Whisper Button which is an anonymous reporting system on the Home Page of our website.
