E-Safety Information

“E-Safety is concerned with the safeguarding of young people on the ‘digital’ world and ensuring that they feel safe when accessing new technology”

Computing in the 21st Century has an all-encompassing role within the lives of children and adults. New internet and online technologies are enhancing communication and the sharing of information. Current and emerging internet and online technologies used in school and, more importantly in many cases, used outside of school by children include: The Internet – World Wide Web; Instant messaging (often using simple web cams) e.g. Instant Messenger; Web based voice and video calling (e.g. Skype); Social networking sites (e.g. Facebook); Blogs and Micro-blogs (e.g. Twitter); Video broadcasting sites (e.g. YouTube); Mobile phones with camera and video functionality.

At Trinity St. Peters we strive to safeguard and educate our pupils in the digital world that we live in. We teach all of our children how to stay safe when using technology and ensure that they are aware of what to do if they feel unsafe when in the “digital” world. This section of our site provides useful information to support parents, pupils and teachers in the monitoring, delivery and everyday implimentation of eSafety.
