This page is for parent/carers to use as a reference point for e-Safety resources. It has links to other resources and practical advice. It is an area that is being developed, resources and further information will be added throughout the year.
E-Safety stands for electronic safety, it is not just about keeping safe on the internet but also keeping safe on all electronic devices such as mobile phones, game consoles, television etc e-Safety means knowing about potential threats when you are online; knowing what you can and cannot (legally) do when you are online; and knowing how to protect yourself from some of the risks that are involved in using the internet. e-Safety covers 'All fixed and mobile technologies that children and young people may encounter, now and in the future, which allow them access to content and communications that could raise issues or pose risks to their wellbeing and safety'.
At Felixstowe Academy we take the safety of our students very seriously including their safe use of electronic devices. Since July 2014, we have worked closely with the team at e-Safer Suffolk. This has included participating in the pilot of e-Safety Peer Ambassadors. Please click on the video to find out more. Or, follow the link to find out what is being done across Suffolk as a County.
Use the links to the left of the page to visit useful websites which provide guidance on how you can help to keep your child safe when using electronic devices.
We tell our children to share but online it's different. In fact sometimes sharing online can be dangerous. That's why we're asking parents to be Share Aware and keep children safe online.
Please take some time to watch the videos below to see the importance of being safe online.
