E-Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, tablets, computers, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate both children and adults about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using all forms of information technology.
- E-Safety targets the safeguarding of 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 that everyone is able to benefit from the opportunities that technology provides for learning with confidence and in safety.
If you have any questions about e-safety at The Vineyard School, please call, or email our Assistant Headteacher, Alice McArdle via email@example.com
