Check your class teams to see if your teachers have set any snow day work then check your assignments to see if there are any outstanding reflection activities that you can be completing.

Year 10 JLC and MJL Classes – sign up for a free Wix account and have a go at creating a simple site – you will be using this in the near future in lessons so being able to navigate the software will help you in the weeks to come.

E-Safety

Digital Footprint 5Ps

The E-Safety Unit is taught to Years 7&8 as part of their normal Computing lessons.

During E-Safety, we cover using technology safely and responsibly, such as The Internet, Social Media, Apps, Phones/Tablets etc, so that students gain an understanding of how to use it all safely, respectfully, responsibly and be able to recognise inappropriate content. Students should know what information is safe to share and what is not, why it is important to be respectful online, who to report inappropriate content to, what their digital footprint is and the laws that relate to E-Safety.
