Online safety is extremely important and students at WMG Academy will follow a planned programme of age relevant online safety work from Year 10 to Year 13. We will look at how to be safe online in all subject lessons where ICT is used, as well as through form time activities and special assemblies during every year. Topics include: cyber-bullying, online predators and sexting.
We encourage teachers and students to use ICT as part of everyday teaching and learning, but as the internet and new technologies are being developed and changed every day it is important that staff, parents and students remain vigilant to possible threats and risks.
The following link provides some useful checklist to help you stay safe online when using social media platforms such Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat.
