Social Media Safety
Throughout history, it has become increasingly important for us to adapt to the challenges of technological advancement:
The printing press was misused to produce counterfeit money.
The first car theft took place only three years after the vehicle’s invention.
And now social media – together with an overwhelming fascination for the digital age – brings a whole host of new risks.
Unkind comments, distorted perceptions; cyber-bullying and, more recently, criminals are using networking platforms to identify potential targets. It is for this very reason that @haileybury_almaty_mrpandya and the Safeguarding Committee have invested in our relationship with @nationalonlinesafety, based in the UK, to inform, educate and support pupils to be safe online.
