With the digital World constantly evolving, it is vital, to be aware of the latest news, guidance, resources and training available. In order to keep not only our pupils, but our staff, families and wider community safe, secure and smart online.
Online safety lessons is an essential part of our Curriculum at Ysgol Llys Hywel. We also have a designated Police Liaison Officer (PC Cath) who visits the school to support the learning of Online Safety issues within the school and classroom. She also ensures that the appropriate and updated safeguarding messages are shared with the children and staff.
