We all know the power of the internet, and how it provides a rich resource for learning, but sadly there are harmful sites too. At Paignton Academy we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for our students whenever they are online. We use the South West Grid for Learning’s powerful filtering system in the Academy, and we teach students about health and safety issues when using the internet through assemblies, during tutor time and in ICT classes.
Below are some useful links to help you keep safe online:
