At Pond Meadow our pupils are taught about online safety as part of the curriculum.
This includes teaching pupils:
- How to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private
- How to identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies
- To be able to recognise acceptable and unacceptable behaviour
- Where appropriate for our young people, they will be taught the safe use of social media
Please find below further guidance about keeping children safe online from the following organisations, websites and guides.
