Staying safe online – A young person’s guide
If you’re aged between 11 and 18, you probably know a lot about using the internet.
We’ve created this space for you to share information on how you can make sure that you are safe when using the internet and social networking sites. We have provided links to really useful websites that can give you advice and guidance on how to protect yourself. At the bottom of this page you will also find downloads on internet safety and cyber bullying. The websites linked in this area will show you ways that you can get yourself out of bad situations online.
The websites linked here try to keep things easy, so you’ll see they’ve split the different things you might do online into different sections. You can also watch films, play games and you have the ability to report someone if you think they are being inappropriate with you online. Please don’t forget that the Academy is always here to offer you support should you need it.
All staff challenge students use of mobile devices based on the premise of
