E-Safety

Tips from our School Family Worker …

Online Safety

Short Definition:

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.

These risks are grouped into four categories:

  1. Conduct: children’s behaviour may put them at risk
  2. Content: access to inappropriate or unreliable content may put children at risk 
  3. Contact: interaction with unsuitable, unpleasant or dangerous people may put children at risk
  4. Commercialism: children’s use of platforms with hidden costs may put them at risk

What can parents do?

T TALK to your child about online sexual abuse. Start the conversation – and listen to their concerns.

A AGREE ground rules about the way you use technology as a family.

L LEARN about the platforms and apps your child loves. Take an interest in their online life.

K KNOW how to use tools, apps, and settings that can help to keep your child safe online.
