E-Safety

Halcyon London International School

Introduction

With all of the potential that the online world and new technology offers, young people now have access to huge opportunities. They use technology to express themselves, explore, and be creative; it has changed the way they communicate. As much as the online culture benefits our students it is also important to understand and be aware of how young people are interacting with their digital spaces and know the risks online worlds present.

Halcyon London International School encourage students to use technology to promote and support their learning. Halcyon also recognises the need to assist students to be aware of how to stay safe on-line. The most recent development to this, is the rewritten Digital Citizenship curriculum, where Halcyon students collaborate, support other students and learn how to stay safe on-line.

Guiding Principle on Digital Learning

"Technology should be used as a tool for learning; not as a distraction"
