E-SAFETY

The Department for Education states:

The internet provides children and young people with a wealth of opportunities for their entertainment, communication and education. But there are also risks of harm through the deliberate behaviour of others online, and through exposure to inappropriate content.

As children grow up in an increasingly digital world, they need to be aware of the risks they face online. Everyone can play a part in keeping children safe and the internet industries have a particular responsibility to create tools and information to help.

In 2017, we have appointed Digital Leaders at school. These are a group of children who are specially trained to deliver important esafety information to their friends, classmates and family. Look out for regular updates from the Digital Leaders team.

Here are a number of links recommended for children and parents dedicated to securing an ‘e-safe’ environment:
