E-Safety is important because it safeguards the concerns of children and young people. It also emphasises the importance and use of new technologies in a positive way as well as encouraging young people to develop safer online behaviours. At Barbara Priestman Academy young people are taught about E-Safety through the ICT curriculum, PHSE curriculum, assemblies and through learning about the risks and dangers through real life problems when they arise. We deliver training sessions for parents to help them understand how to keep their children safe when they use the internet and social media.
