Physical Safety and Psychological Wellbeing
To provide students with cyber safety education that helps protect them today and helps them act with thought for their own futures, safeguarding their opportunities to find suitable employment along with protecting their reputations.
To develop both the understandings and the skills required to use Information technology appropriately in order to reduce the chances for harm to occur to the student, their family and friends.
To encourage students to see empathy and the rights of others as a valuable tool when communicating with and or supporting others.
The intention of this education is to help the student learn to make informed ethical decisions founded on common decency and reasonable standards of right and wrong.
Resilient students understand what is theirs by right:
- To be respected
- To be valued
- To be supported
- To be listened to
- To be protected
- To learn
Information technology connects us with the world whilst at the same time it separates us from others. Now more than ever before, empathy, the ability to think about how another person is feeling, should be the foundation upon which we educate children, whether in the home, the school or in the community.
Empathy is a gift children share between themselves every day; when we see it, we should acknowledge it, and when possible reward it. John Parsons
