What is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is any form of bullying that occurs online and/or through electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Cyberbullying includes sending, posting or sharing negative, harmful, false or malicious content about another person. This may involve sharing personal or private information about others, which may cause embarrassment or humiliation. Some cyberbullying crosses the line into illegal or criminal activity.
What Kiwi do
- We will promote an antibullying ethos amongst the staff and learners and reinforce the Kiwi anti-bullying policies
- We have an E-Safety Policy in place to protect activity on electronic devices and the internet, as well as to raise awareness of how to stay safe online, which students can find in their student handbook
