At Cannock Chase High School we recognise that technology is a fundamental part of modern-day life.
However along with the opportunities that ICT offers it also brings with it problems and risks that all students need to be aware of. Being safe is also about teaching young people to make the right decisions online.
E-safety is high priority at Cannock Chase High School and all students receive information advice, guidance and support appropriate to their age through our robust PHSE curriculum and through ICT lessons.
We will regularly share information with parents and carers via our social media platforms and through communications home.
Please see our online safety policy here.
