Online Safety at The Oaks
At The Oaks we regard Online Safety as an essential part of all our childrens’ learning. All children need to be aware of safe and responsible use of ICT.
Online Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
- Online Safety concerns safeguarding children and young people in the digital world.
- Online Safety emphasises learning to understand and use new technologies in a positive way.
- Online Safety is less about restriction and more about education about the risks as well as the benefits so we can feel confident online.
- Online Safety is concerned with supporting children and young people to develop safer online behaviours both in and out of school.
