Online safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits and risks of using new technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences.
At Swallowfield we understand the importance of children being made aware of the benefits and risks of using technology in our technologically advancing world. We have integrated online safety throughout our cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning – in particular within our computing curriculum.
