Every school must encourage good behaviour and prevent all forms of bullying amongst pupils.
As technology and the internet are becoming more and more accessible it is paramount to children’s safeguarding to be in the know of what they are accessing, the risks involved and how we can encourage them to make safe decisions when online.
