Digital Wellbeing

“Children and young people need to be empowered to keep them-selves safe. Children will be children – pushing boundaries and taking risks. At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim.”

 

Dr Tanya Byron Safer children in a digital world: The report of the Byron Review.

 

At the Catholic School of Saint Gregory The Great we take E-safety very seriously. We have Digital Wellbeing Group made up of teachers, TPs, Governors and pupils and their role is to monitor E-safety within school including reviewing policies and procedures and dealing with day to day issues.

                                                                               

What is E Safety?

 

The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access than ever before.
Use of the Internet can also have risks. Young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers.


These dangers include:

 

  • viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour.
  • giving out personal information
  • arranging to meet an online 'friend'
  • becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • spending too much time online (internet addiction), which can effect concentration, sleep and health
  • copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own.
