THE Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy (IPACA) is supporting a campaign to promote safe and responsible use of technology.

The academy will be marking Safer Internet Day on Tuesday, February 11 with students taking part in a range of activities including website design and computer science.

Academy director of digital learning and innovation Gary Spracklen said: “New technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people in today’s society, both in schools and in their lives outside.

“The internet and other digital and information technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone.”
