E-Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. Anyone can send messages, discuss ideas and publish material with little restriction. This is why there is a great need to educate children, young people and adults about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
All partner agencies, stakeholders, schools and educational settings and all other organisations within the community providing services to children have a duty to understand e-safety issues as part of its wider safeguarding duties; recognising their role in helping children to remain safe online while also supporting the adults who care for children.
