eSafety

Welcome to our eSafety page.  The purpose of this page is to share with your a range of resources, information and tips on how we can make students become more aware of eSafety and also how we can make better use of the internet.

We commit to:

  1. Providing a safe environment for students to learn online in our school.
  2. Raising awareness of social media issues, how to navigate these and how to make good choices when using technology in and beyond the classroom.
  3. Using technology wisely and effectively to transform and enhance learning, not as a direct tool to substitute during tasks.

We hope you find the resources below helpful.

Additionally, if you have any articles, resources or ideas to share with us, please let us know. Thank you to all parents, teachers and students for your support in putting this eSafety page and our school awareness plan together. This is not a quick fix, its a long term commitment to helping, supporting and listening to our students with their use of the internet and technology.

E-Safety Tips

  1. Privacy settings – Terms and Conditions. Settings are key in e-Safety, location sharing, know what you download
  2. Sharing private and personal information. Sharing publicly, passwords, talk about what is safe to share, parents start their child’s digital footprint
  3. Have open conversations about being safe online.  Listen more than talk, express your worries, encourage children to share
  4. Accessibility of digital devices, websites & apps.  Restrictions, tired of being wired, blue light
  5. Communicating online.  Social media, online-language, online gaming, chats
