Online safety is extremely important and pupils at Arden will follow a planned programme of age relevant online safety work from Year 7 to Year 13. They will look at how to be safe online in all subject lessons where ICT is used, as well as through form time activities and special assemblies during every year. Topics include: cyber-bullying, online predators and sexting. Click to see online safety student production
We encourage teachers and pupils to use ICT as part of everyday teaching and learning, but as the internet and new technologies are being developed and changed every day it is important that staff, parents and pupils remain vigilant to possible threats and risks.
We have an online safety group which helps to review polices and look at how Arden supports students to stay safe online. This group is made up of subject teachers, pastoral staff, ICT support staff, governors and parents.
Student Digital Leaders are involved in delivering key messages to other pupils through assemblies in the Autumn term each year. They also ensure that online safety reminders are displayed in classrooms across school.
For any further information on online safety please contact Mr Mark Hooper (Deputy Head Teacher)
