E - Safety

The term ‘e-safety’, can also be called ‘Internet safety’, ‘Online safety’ or ‘Web safety’.  E-safety is often defined as the safe and responsible use of technology.  This includes the use of the Internet and also other means of communication, such as text messages, gaming devices, email etc. It means ensuring that your child is protected and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.

The documents and the links on this page aim to help you answer that question and the Parent Factsheet has lots of advice on how you can help your child be 'e-safe'.
