E Safety at TAS

At TAS, we understand how useful the internet came be. However, we also understand that it is important for everyone to keep themselves safe from the potential dangers online. E safety is a strand that runs throughout the curriculum and is the responsibility of everyone within TAS. Kirsty Swierkowski, with expert guidance from the managing director of Digital Lancashire, Stewart Townsend, heads our e safety programme. Advice relating to e safety is regularly posted on our social media sites and videos can be found on Kirsty S’s YouTube channel.
