E-Safety, Social Media, Radicalisation
The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access then ever before, but using the Internet can also have risks.
Children and young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the 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
- social media such as Twitter and Facebook
If you have any questions or concerns about E-Safety at school or at home then please don't hesitate to contact Mrs Watson, Mrs Anslow or Mr Pennock at school.
