YouTube Safety Fact Sheet for Parents
Please see the document below - this is a useful safety Fact sheet on You Tube for Parents.
What is E-Safety?
Whilst the internet and associated technologies are an excellent tool with resource to enrich learning, there are still dangers related to their use, especially in relation to young children. Some examples of this are:
Bullying via chat (mobile phones) or email
Obsessive internet use
Exposure to inappropriate materials
Inappropriate or illegal behaviour
Physical danger of sexual abuse
As a school it is our duty of care alongside that of parents and other members of the community to protect our children from these dangers and this can be achieved by many different mechanisms working together.
The purpose of this e-safety is to outline what measures our school takes to ensure that children can work in an e-safe environment and that any e-safety issue is detected and dealt with in a timely and appropriate fashion.
Shaw Primary Academy works with staff, pupils and parents/carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
