What is e-Safety?
E-Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones. This policy highlights the need to educate pupils about the benefits and risks of using technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences.
At St Joseph’s we believe that learning about staying safe online is very important. We make sure all our students are aware of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. Every student, parent and or carer signs our acceptable use of ICT and Internet form to make sure they understand how to use the equipment and stay safe online. We also seek parent/carers permission to publish images of their child,especially for those images from which a child can be identified.
Be SMART and stay safe when using the Internet
SMART rules will help our young people to stay safe online when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles and home computers.
