‘Our vision is to make the children at Woodstock School as safe and productive in the on-line world, both in school and outside of school, as they are in the real world with particular focus on protection against grooming, cyberbullying and becoming a positive e-citizen.’
We are living in an increasingly connected world where, alongside the benefits of access to technology, come increased risks to children. Lack of guidance and learning in E-safety can mean children are unaware of the unintended consequences of their on-line behaviour or actions. It highlights the need to educate pupils and the school community about the benefits and risks of using Internet technologies and electronic communications, and provide safeguards and awareness for users, to enable them to control their online experience.
