E-Safety

E- Safety

 

E-safety is a term which means not only the internet but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media, e.g. mobile phones. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.

The aim of promoting e-safety is to protect young people from the adverse consequences of access or use of electronic media, including from bullying, inappropriate sexualised behaviour or exploitation.

The Schools' E-Safety Policy reflects the need to raise awareness of the safety issues associated with electronic communications as a whole.

E-Safety depends on effective practice at a number of levels

  • Responsible ICT use by all staff and students; encouraged by education and made explicit through published policies.
  • Sound implementation of e-safety policy in both administration and curriculum,including secure school network design and use.
  • Safe and secure internet provision by Edutech Solutions Ltd.

Below we have listed a selection of sites which are used in school and have great age-appropriate material to educate children of the potential risks to them when online. Please take a moment to look, as they have some great information for parents.

St Joseph’s RC Primary School E Safety Policy 2017

Our e-Safety Policy has been written by the school, building on that proposed by BECTA e-Safety Policy and government guidance. It has been agreed by the senior leadership team and approved by governors.


An e-Safety Coordinator (Mrs Francis) and a named governor (Mr Facwett) takes responsibility for e-Safety.
The e-Safety Policy and its implementation will be reviewed annually.
