Technology is part of our everyday life and personal devices such as mobile phones, tablets and iPads are used by many of you at Hollinwood Academy. We want you to be able to use social media, personal devices and technology in general at school. We want to make sure you have the skills to use technology and social media safely and respectfully. The e-Safe Award has been set up to recognise students who fully understand e-Safety. To gain the award you will need to complete the 5 sessions and pass a final test. You will also need to agree to the e-Safe rules and sign the Young Person Acceptable Use Agreement. You will then be presented with the e-Safe Award and be expected to be a role model to others when using technology in school.
