“Growing up has never been easy, but today the virtual world presents a whole set of new risks. Young people live in an always-on, social, digital and connected world, and it’s the only world they’ve ever known… While the internet brings amazing opportunities for young people to learn, create and socialise, it is our duty to help them navigate this online world safely. Young people must recognise that every click, every post, every purchase and every photo we upload leaves a digital footprint.” (UK Minister for Internet Safety and Security)
At Royal Liberty School we believe ‘the internet matters’, therefore we want staff, students, parents and carers to embrace this technology and become a community, which can confidently and safely use the evolving technology.
We teach all pupils how to stay safe when using the internet and how to report issues which may arise whilst being online. We would like parents and carers to join us in helping the school to keep our students safe by raising awareness of the risks of being online and knowing how they can ensure their children stay safe.
In order to support families to protect our students online, we are working with National Online Safety to provide resources for all parents and carers. Each week we will be posting our #WakeupWednesday help guides for parents and carers to use.
