Policy Statement

The possibilities of the internet and mobile phones are endless. Young people benefit from having opportunity to access one another and communicate in a variety of different forms. However, not all aspects of Information Communications Technology (ICT) are positive and it can enable additional routes for those intent on bullying.

Online behaviour is no different in principle from behaviour in the school or face to face. The same rules of politeness and consideration apply, as do the same sanctions for breaches of those rules.
