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 using electronic media (e.g. text messages, gaming devices, email etc…). In practice, e-safety is as much about behaviour as it is electronic security.
Moira Primary School recognises the importance of promoting internet safety. We aim to deliver a whole school approach to e-safety that helps our pupils improve their own understanding of associated issues enabling them to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
NSPCC Keeping Safe Project: Online Safety Links
We use the preventative education resources from NSPCC Keeping Safe project for teaching our students about online safety.
The 'Parental Control Guide' will help you set up controls to provide your child with a safer online environment. Whilst these controls can help to protect your children from seeing something they shouldn't, no system is effective all of the time so it is important to talk to your child about their online safety regularly.
