Nine Steps to E-Safety
Did You Know?
- 92% of secondary school children have had experience of being cyber-bullied (NFER E-safety report, 2012)
- 77% of 12 to 13 year olds have a Facebook or another social networking page (The Cybersurvey, 2012)
- 40% of Key Stage 3 and 4 students have witnessed a 'sexting' incident and, in the same group, 40% didn't consider topless images inappropriate
With regular headlines in the press about cyber-bullying, the dangers of inappropriate content and the questionable safety of social media; combined with an increasing number of students wanting to bring in their own internet-enabled devices and mobile phones; it's little wonder that E-safety is quite rightly becoming a growing priority.
In fact, E-safety has become so important that OFSTED now includes it as part of their inspections. So how do you enable pupils to take full advantage of the technology to support learning and prepare them for the real world whilst providing a safe environment?
