Today’s students are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. At Lytham St Annes High School we want to equip our students with the knowledge needed to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considerate, and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world. Our aim is to deliver online safety content within the school curriculum and embed this as a whole school approach. We have policies in place to ensure our pupils are learning in a safe and secure environment, which includes being safe online.
The online safety information provided here has been organised to help parents and carers contribute to the process of helping their child to be aware of the potential risks associated with using the Internet and modern technologies and allow pupils to easily access help and support. However, as technology moves on at such a pace, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with new trends and developments, particularly with regard to mobile/games technologies, social networking sites, and secure and safe access to other online material.
Please also look out for updates on our termly newsletters.
