e-Safety

The internet has become part of our everyday lives, whether accessed from a computer, mobile phone or other devices. It is used to buy and sell goods, online banking, finding information and socialising. It can also have a darker side, children and young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of dangers.

These dangers can include:

  • viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour
  • giving out personal information
  • arranging to meet an online 'friend'
  • becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • spending too much time online which can effect concentration, education, sleep and health
  • copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own.
