eSafety

 

The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access then ever before.

Use of the Internet can also have risks. Young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers when using the Internet.


These dangers include:

  • viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour
    giving out personal information
  • arranging to meet an online 'friend'
  • becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • spending too much time online (internet addiction), which can effect concentration, sleep and health
  • copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own.

 

Because of these issues and others associated with using the Internet in general, all year 7 pupils will complete a course looking at eSafety in their ICT lessons.

 

Some top tips for ensuring good eSafety:

  • Be involved in your child's online life
  • Watch Thinkuknow films to learn more.
  • Keep up-to-date with your child's development online.
  • Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world.
  • Know what connects to the internet and how.
  • Consider the use of parental controls on devices that link to the internet, such as the TV, laptops, computers, games consoles and mobile phones.
  • Emphasise that not everyone is who they say they are.
  • Know what to do if something goes wrong.
