Internet technology helps Students learn creatively and effectively. It encourages collaborative learning and the sharing of good practice amongst academy staff and students. The e-safety policy is there to encourage appropriate behaviour and safe conduct. E-safety is conveyed in the school by

E-safety events, e.g. Safer Internet Day and Anti-Bullying Week.

E-safety as part of pastoral care including: form time activities; assemblies; year group presentations; tutorial opportunities.

E-safety as a PSHE teaching unit including (but not limited to): how to deal with cyber-bullying; how to report cyber-bullying; the social effects of spending too much time online.

Students, staff and all other users of school-related technologies will work together to agree standards and expectations relating to usage in order to promote and ensure good behaviour.
