The list of e-Safety weblinks below is aimed at providing information and better awareness to students, teachers and parents of the issues relating to the use of the Internet, mobile phones and other ICT technologies.
Communication systems such as social networks, blogs, mobile phones and email have become increasingly important in our daily lives and often have important benefits but, as we all know, there are also risks to be considered and evaluated.
Access to the Internet can take place almost anywhere at anytime and it is important that students, teachers and parents are aware of the risks and know how to use modern technologies appropriately and are able to discuss the issues in school, at home and between friends and what actions to take when something goes wrong.
Broomfield South SILC has integrated e-Safety lessons, across the SILC, and this webpage provides additional support in addition to the materials sent out to parents and students during the year.
Here are some useful PowerPoint presentations which provide information on specific topics.
The websites below provide a comprehensive list of links and information about online safety so parents, and their children, can decide what is right for their family when using the Internet and associated technologies.
