Safeguarding Information

So what is Online Safety?

 

  • Online Safety is concerned with safeguarding children, young people and indeed adults in the digital world.
  • It is about learning to understand and use new technologies and Information Communication Technology (ICT) in a positive way.
  • Online Safety is not about restricting children, but educating them about the risks as well as the benefits so they can feel confident and happy online.
  • It is about being educated ourselves so we are able to support and help children and young people online.
