Technology is integral to modern life and internet access is part of our daily lives at work, school and home. There are benefits and risks associated with new technologies and it is essential for young people and their parents and carers to understand how to reduce and manage these risks to make the most of the opportunities that the internet provides.
At Sarum Hall, sensible and monitored use of the internet across the curriculum encourages discussion about its benefits and drawbacks. An emphasis is placed on following the SMART rules to encourage responsible and safe online activity and to help pupils become responsible digital citizens.
