e-Safety

e-Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

Whilst Hambleton School uses a filtered system of access to the internet the children need to understand that the Internet is an unmanaged, open communications channel. The World Wide Web, email, blogs and social networks all transmit information using the Internet’s communication infrastructure internationally at low cost. Anyone can send messages, discuss ideas and publish material with little restriction. These features of the Internet make it an invaluable resource used by millions of people every day.

Pupils need to develop critical skills to evaluate online material and learn that publishing personal information could compromise their security and that of others. Schools have a duty of care to enable pupils to use on-line systems safely.

Visit the excellent Think U Know, Kidsmart or educate against hate websites or download the Safer Surfing Poster.

You can help by encouraging your child to visit the websites recommended under ‘Stay Safe Online’ accessed via the ‘Children’ tab on this school’s website.
