Online Safety Young people today are immersed in a digital world. From a very young age they have access to a whole host of new technologies and the internet. Whilst there are huge benefits to this there are also many potential problems. Here at Sybil Andrews Academy we teach online safety through lessons, assemblies, tutor time and within PSHE. This includes cyberbullying, digital cheating, identify, self-image, digital footprint, communication and internet safety.
We understand that it is essential for all young people to have the necessary skills to be able to manage the online world.
