What is Online Safety?
It can be called E Safety (or e-safety), Online Safety or Internet Safety, but it all means the same thing. It’s about risk; it’s about being aware of the possible threats that online activity can bring, and how to deal with them.
At school we teach children about keeping safe while they use digital technology supported by eAWARE.
As a whole school we complete a self evaluation of online safety annually using 360 degree safe and test our internet filter each term.
