In the fast evolving world of digital technology and social media, it is critical that students (and parents) are aware of both the benefits, but dangers too. There are far reaching implications, including an impact on future employment, if young people use web based technology inappropriately or unsafely. We will continue to highlight safe approaches to this life-changing technology, alongside the numerous benefits on quality of life.

Our most recent documents are posted below.
