E-Safety

E-safety is extremely important and pupils at Q3 Academy Tipton will follow a planned programme of age relevant e-safety work from Year 7 to Year 13. They will look at how to be safe online through life lessons and assemblies. Topics include: cyber-bullying, online predators, digital footprint and sexting. 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.
