Online Safety

The use of technology continues to be an important component of safeguarding young people. Technology, whilst providing many opportunities for learning also provides a platform that can facilitate harm. Keeping Children Safe in Education categorises online safety into three broad areas:

Content: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material; for example pornography, fake news, racist or radical and extremist views;
Contact: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users; for example commercial advertising as well as adults posing as children or young adults; and
Conduct: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm; for example making, sending and receiving explicit images, or online bullying
