Online Safety

About Online Safety

The school’s E-Safety Policy reflects the importance it places on the safe use of information systems and electronic communications.

E-Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

  • E-Safety concerns safeguarding children and young people in the digital world.
  • E-Safety emphasises learning to understand and use new technologies in a positive way.
  • E-Safety is less about restriction and more about education about the risks as well as the benefits so we can feel confident online.
  • E-Safety is concerned with supporting children and young people to develop safer online behaviours both in and out of school.
