Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary, NASUWT

More than ever in this past year, technology has played an increasingly prominent role in teaching and learning, enabling both to continue throughout the global pandemic.  This has, though, provided more opportunity for the abuse and misuse of technology, which continues to damage the lives of pupils and teachers, adversely affecting their health and wellbeing. 

The NASUWT continues to campaign for greater protection for pupils and teachers from cyber-bullying and sexual harassment online and provides advice, guidance and training to help create safer work places and learning environments. No-one deserves to be abused or bullied because of their identity.  The NASUWT is proud to support Safer Internet Day, which provides the opportunity to celebrate the positive benefits of the internet while raising awareness of the dangers.
