Staying safe online
Uplands School takes the online safety of its students seriously and builds into lessons and fun times the need to stay safe online, at all times.
Young people with special educational needs are more at risk when using ICT. Young people with SEN may be more vulnerable when using the internet and social media sites such as Facebook as they may not be aware that they are being bullied or that their own actions could be misunderstood as bullying. Young people may also not be able to judge when it is safe to share personal information online or how to report bullying.
