eSafety for Parents

 

What is eSafety?

eSafety (Internet Safety) encompasses the use of Internet technologies and electronic communications such as:

  • Webcams
  • Digital video equipment
  • Mobile phones, camera phones
  • PDAs
  • Portable media players.
  • Wearable technology

It highlights the need to educate pupils about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology as well as raising user’s awareness of how to keep themselves safe using electronic technology.

At Mountfield Primary School we take the issue of eSafety very seriously. Throughout each academic year the children are taught about how to stay safe whilst using the vast array of technology available to them as part of their curriculum. Staff at Mountfield have also been CEOP trained and are able to talk to children about issues relating to eSafety.  eSafety policies are also reviewed yearly to keep them current and up to date.
