Technology has become an ever more important part of our lives over the last decade. We use it every day for study, work, entertainment, shopping and getting in touch with our family and friends. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways of finding information, sharing ideas and working collaboratively.
And like everything, it has to be used safely and responsibly. As well as opportunities, there are also risks that we need to be aware of and guard against. As children get older they spend more and more of their waking hours connected to digital devices—impacting their reputations, learning opportunities, and futures.
At Foxdell we are committed to giving our pupils the tools to stay safe online. This area is designed to provide pupils with information and links to a variety of different websites to help them understand the benefits and the risks.
