Students are taught about the use of computers for educational purposes across the curriculum. This includes the best ways to gather reliable and evidence based research, how to validate findings and how to identify and ignore anomalies.

Students are also taught about the specific use of modern technologies in risk taking behaviours through the PDLS curriculum including the sessions focussed on bullying, tolerance and respect as well as the sex and relationships sessions.

Additional E Safety sessions for students have been run this year with a range of partner agencies so that the message is specific to each year group.
