Students equipped to stay safe online
Computing lessons at The Radclyffe School this week are enabling students to learn about staying safe online.
Throughout the week our young people are gaining the advice and information they need on issues as diverse as cyberbullying, protecting their data and safe social networking.
Students have been asked for their views on their greatest concerns about staying safe online. Amongst their biggest issues were how they keep control of their ‘digital footprint’ and how they cope with the lure of online gaming.
Head of Computing Andy Maher explained, “Our students are learning exactly what they need to do to stay safe when they are online. In lessons and in assemblies for each year group we are sharing top tips, as well as celebrating the positive things about the internet.”
The week has been arranged to coincide with Safer Internet Day (11 February).
Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre in February of each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people.
