The ways in which young people use digital technologies to learn and socialise expands rapidly at this stage of their school life. At Greensward Academy we recognise the benefits and risks this poses to students in both the physical and the digital world.
Each academic year, we provide the following online safety learning opportunities to foster a culture of responsibility and personal safety in the digital world amongst our students:
- An introduction to staying safe online for Year 7s in their first half term at Greensward through their ICT lessons.
- Personal and online safety workshops for Year 8 and 9 students.
- As part of the Tutor programme and PSHEE lessons students engage in topics such as sharing content safely, engaging with others responsibly, digital footprints and personal safety.
On 22nd February 2018, as part of Safer Internet Awareness 2018, we will be running a series of workshops for parents, carers and students about staying safe online.
