E-Safety

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 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
  • E-Safety is concerned with supporting safer online behaviours both in and out of school

At The Vineyard School we believe that e-Safety is the responsibility of the whole school community. We believe everyone has their part to play in ensuring all members of the community are able to benefit from the opportunities that technology provides for learning with confidence and in safety. 
 

E-Safety is a focus for the school. Further information will be published here shortly.

Please visit our Safe Fun Online page, in the Communications section of this website, where we share ideas for enjoying online life safely.
