Cyberbullying and Online Safety
The internet is pivotal to our daily lives, even more so in this period of remote learning. Our young people live online and keep up-to-date with the latest apps and websites. There are many benefits to being online, and we have seen some of them being realised during lockdown as we all use the internet to maintain contact with family and friends. It is arguably more important than ever to ensure we are speaking to our young people about using the internet responsibly.
As part of Anti-Bullying week 2019, we hosted an event looking at cyberbullying and online safety. Alan Hamilton, DHT, discussed Stirling High’s approach to cyberbullying and online safety and led a discussion around staying safe online – realising the opportunities, minimising the risks and respecting the law.
