We are committed to ensuring that students are safe when using the internet at Branwood. We ask parents/carers to be interested and supportive when monitoring their children’s use of the internet.
Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.
The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.
When online, children and young people can learn new things, get help with their homework, express themselves creatively, and connect with friends and family. There are also risks, but by understanding and talking about the dangers, all children can be kept safe online.
E-Safety is of high priority at Branwood and students receive advice and guidance appropriate to their age and ‘e-awareness’.
