Online Safety

As a society technology and social media is progressing at a rapid rate. These advancements provide exciting opportunities for our young people, but also without the appropriate guidance, support and teaching in place to safeguard, use of technology can put our young people at risk of serious harm.

We recognise that as a school many of our young people, due to their learning disability, will not be accessing these platforms independently and therefore are protected from such risks. We know that online safety is everyone’s responsibility and extends far beyond the classroom. We all have a role to play in creating a safer digital world for our school community.

For a bespoke group of pupils

At Glyne Gap we have a small cohort of pupils developing higher level functional skills and who are accessing devices independently.  These pupils are taught how to be safe online and become responsible digital citizens.
