eSafety

New technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people in today's society, both within schools and in their lives outside of school. The internet and other digital information and communications technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and awareness of context to promote effective learning. Young people should have an entitlement to stay safe at all times. 

At Redwood, we encourage all the children to follow the SMART rules both in school and at home .
