Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place over digital devices such as phones, computers or tablets. Cyberbullying includes sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false or mean content about someone else. This can include sharing personal or private information about someone else causing embarrassment or humiliation.
At Oak Tree we take cyberbullying very seriously and we equip our students with the skills needed to identify online bullying and how to respond to it. National Online Safety have created a guide to help young people understand cyberbullying, which can be found below.
Alongside teaching our pupils about cyberbullying we also teach about the importance of digital wellbeing. With the online world being such a huge part of young people's lives, it is very important that we help them to understand how to use it safely, sensibly and with an awareness of how it can impact on them. Childnet have created a page on their website with further information as to how you can support your child's digital wellbeing, tailored to their age. You can find this page here.
