E-Safety is a term which encompasses both the internet and other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media e.g. smart phones, tablets and gaming consoles. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies, whilst minimising risk to themselves and others.
The aim is to protect young people from adverse consequences as a result of their use of electronic communication, including from accessing inappropriate content, harmful material, bullying, inappropriate sexualised behaviour or exploitation.
We are aware that many children have access to the internet at their fingertips and it is our collective responsibility to ensure that we provide children with the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions and ways to report situations in which they feel uncomfortable.
Below you will find links to websites, pdfs and any other documents that we use in school as part of our e-safety/ on-line safety programme. Our e-safety programme forms part of our Child Protection/ Safeguarding commitment (See ‘Our School’).
