With the increasing number of Internet-connected devices and easier access to fast-speed broadband connections it is important to understand how to stay safe within the on-line environment. Social Media, YouTube, blogs, video blogs etc., are fantastic tools to communicate with other people but can also become dangerous tools in the hands of a wrong person.

At Daventry UTC we pride ourselves in putting the safety of our students and staff as a main priority. Below, there are two links to websites - for both students and parents - on how to stay safe within on-line and digital environments. We would like to encourage everybody to spend a moment to familiarising themselves with these websites.
