At St Thomas’s Centre we want all staff to be aware of online safety issues which can affect them. Staff can become the target of online bullying and have social media accounts targeted.  Staff must also be aware of professional responsibilities when sharing information online and take into consideration online reputations and digital footprints.

As leaders and role models, St Thomas’s Centre staff must consistently promote online safety messages not only through the Curriculum but also through modelling the behaviour we wish to see in our students.  In order to help staff in addition to CPD training, below there is a range of useful resources and links to various helpful websites.
