Glow has rich potential as a place for Scotland’s children and young people to become confident digital citizens.
The following Glow Community Rules are aimed at supporting learners, teachers and parents to develop a good awareness of e-safety and to take full advantage of Glow and the internet in a positive, safe, and responsible way.
As with all internet activity, please remember to follow the guidance about internet safety provided by your school. If you are a learner and have a question or need advice, speak to a teacher or other trusted adult. Download the additional information and guidance for educators and staff on internet safety.
