Safety is a genuine and important concern. One that is top of the list for many parents when they first are introduced to a school’s plans to introduce a 1:1 programme.
Safety covers two key areas, physical safety i.e. the risk of the device being stolen and the online safety or protection from inappropriate material, online bullying etc.
Generally speaking the fears greatly outweigh the reality and with proper advice and guidance the number of significant instances is extremely low.
