E-safety is about ensuring that learners can access the technologies and resources they need without putting themselves at risk personally or financially. It’s about a learning provider making sure that learners, staff and all their stakeholders know how to keep safe while using technology and resources.

E-safety can includes topics such as cyber bullying, mobile phone technology, preventing identity theft, privacy, social networking sites such as FaceBook and child protection.

Using the Internet responsibly is now a significant part of many lessons. All school students will look at issues relating to safety using the Internet in Key Stage 3 ICT lessons, and issues involving cyber-bullying in PSHE/assemblies.

Facebook Users might be interested in our new Focus on Facebook page which has some top tips on staying safe. It can be accessed from the left hand menu.
