We live in a digital age where technology is playing an ever increasing part in our lives; it is changing the way that we do things both inside and outside of the College and although we recognise the benefits of technology we must also be aware of the potential risks and ensure that all staff, pupils and parents/carers associated with the College are able to use technology in a safe and responsible manner.

Many of these risks reflect situations in the offline world but it is important that as a College we have a planned and coordinated approach to ensuring that all those who use College technology do so in a safe and responsible way. As with all risks, it is impossible to eliminate them completely but with a planned and coordinated approach they can be significantly reduced and users can be taught to manage them effectively.
