Herts for Learning Online
:: Safeguarding in a digital world: eSafety for secondary schools ::
Outline
Keeping young people safe online and teaching them about the appropriate and responsible use of the internet is an essential part of a school’s safeguarding role. The proliferation of mobile devices over recent years means that most pupils and students are online for an increasing amount of time, often in their rooms and away from any form of supervision. It has therefore never been more important that they are taught how to keep themselves safe from the risks that exist online. Ofsted make a number of recommendations relating to eSafety; staff should be trained and pupils taught about how to stay safe, and schools should engage with parents so that they are also aware of the risks and how to protect their children.
