ICT and e-safety
What is e-safety?
In today's society children, young people and adults interact with technologies such as mobile phones, games consoles and the Internet on a daily basis and experience a range of opportunities, attitudes and situations. The exchange of ideas, social interaction and learning opportunities involved are greatly beneficial to all, but can occasionally place children, young people and adults in danger.
e-safety covers issues relating to children and young people as well as adults and their safe use of the Internet, mobile phones and other electronic communications technologies, both in and out of school. It includes education for all members of the school community on risks and responsibilities and is part of the 'duty of care' which applies to everyone working with children.
During the summer term, the Safer Schools Community Police Team visit our school and deliver an annual e-safety workshop to educate parents, carers and children. e-Safety is also embeded within our ICT curriculum alongside skills for using ICT. We also celebrate Internet Safety day in the spring term.
Our e-safety policy is essential in setting out how the school plans to develop and establish its e-safety approach and to identify core principles which all members of the school community need to be aware of and understand.
