Online Safety Group
We would like to encourage open discussions between staff and students to develop a better understanding of the online world our students engage in on a day to day basis. With greater understanding we can try to break down some of the generational barriers and the seemingly ‘taboo’ subject matters our young people deal with. The subject of online safety, for our students, is the responsibility of all concerned. It has to be a partnership between students, staff and parents if we wish to understand and support our young people as they move into adulthood. Technology and social media move at a fast pace and so a confident, informed and resilient young adult needs to have the skills to deal with the changes.
To listen with empathy and without judgement, understanding that it is sometimes difficult for students to come forward with their concerns or worries. Students would then be supported and offered strategies and tools to deal with the next challenge. To find out more about online safety/restriction measures and how that could be effectively employed at home.
