Technology is an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as being part of our every day lives, both at home, in the workplace and socially. However much Technology has a positive impact on our lives, it is imperative that we understand the harm it can also cause. Therefore, it is important that we equip our young people with the 'tools', knowledge, skills and awareness to use technology responsibly to enhance and develop their lives.
We also understand that as a parent it can be hard to monitor and manage your childs online activity and safety, so here are some resources for you to access.
