At Red Marsh School we recognise that technology is now an inescapable and positive part of everyday life and learning. Using technology sensibly is something that we encourage all our pupils to do. It is important that we work together in partnership to teach online safety both at home and at school.
Online safety means keeping safe when using modern technology. This could include: mobile phones and tablets, the internet and social networking sites.
Our key online safety message is: “Speak out. Stay safe. Show or tell a trusted adult”
All pupils are encouraged to show or tell at least one trusted adult at home or school if something they see or do online makes them feel scared, worried or upset. If possible, help your child to identify five trusted adults.
