E-safety is a growing area as technology advances. At Hornsea School we hope to help give students, parents and anyone else that is concerned guidance on this issue. E-safety can relate to a variety of different technologies that young people and adults are using more and more in their everyday lives, including social networking sites such as facebook, mobile phones, online chat, and the mass of other tools and fun things to do that are made available on the internet. You will also find information about the threats that these technologies pose, such as viruses, malware, E-bullying and other issues, most importantly however, you will be able to learn what to do about them, to allow you to use these powerful new tools in a safe and fun way to enhance learning and allow easy access to information and fun activities. If students feel the need to talk to someone in school about any of these things, then they can go to a variety of people, including Mr Hart, our director of E-learning, and also a trained CEOP ambassador who has lots of knowledge about many of the common problems that can face young people and adults as well using the internet.
We have gathered together what we feel are some of the best websites that deal with these issues to allow you to better understand the digital world that both you are likely to be interacting with day in and day out.
You will also find the CEOP safety button on the bottom of each page of our website and many other websites and applications such as MSN and you can add it to your Facebook account by following this link which we urge you to do to keep you informed of new and developing issues that will allow you to stay safe. To add the app, go on the "clickCEOP" tab and press on the clickCEOP app button a little further down the page.
