Digital Leaders Launch

Ashton Park 6th form students have begun the Digital Leaders Qualification. This is a qualification run by Childnet that qualifies participants in the program to support their peers, younger students, staff and parents in all aspects of Digital Safety. A Digital Leader will offer help on a range of concerns and support such as privacy settings on social media, cyberbullying and inappropriate messages and pictures. Each year group in Ashton Park has a dedicated team of Digital Leaders who are trained to support their group. The Digital Leaders will be running events for their year groups and look out for them at parent evenings and year specific events.

Brandon Holmes and Beth Williams, our year 9 leaders, began the launch of Digital Leaders successfully at YR9 parents evening last night.

Digital Leaders for Year 7, 8 and 9 are offering help drop ins every Wednesday lunchtime in C7 , they will be able to help you with anything from correct settings on accounts to anything that is worrying you about social media.

Watch out for the Digital Leaders next week as they visit tutor groups in YR7,YR8,YR9 to introduce themselves and to launch some exciting competitions.
