Staying Safe Online

notbigger

Online Safety (or e-safety) is about using technology safely, especially technology that can access the internet or be used to communicate with others. While the internet offers exciting opportunities for learning, entertainment, creativity and connecting with others, it also carries potential risks that children and young people need to understand.

At Wadhurst, we are committed to teaching children how to use technology safely and confidently, by minimising risks through their responsible choices and appropriate behaviour. Children are regularly encouraged to speak to a trusted adult to ask for help with decisions or if they are worried about any content they encounter online.

The rules of e-safety apply to any technology or device that can be used for communication and/or has access to the internet. This includes:

  • Computers and laptops.
  • Mobile phones and smart watches.
  • Tablets.
  • Games consoles, e.g. Xbox, PS4.
