Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.
The internet and online technology provide new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks. E-safety forms a fundamental part of our school’s safeguarding and child protection measures. We have a dual responsibility when it comes to e-safety: to ensure the school’s online procedures keep children and young people safe, and to teach them about online safety in, and outside of, school.
