E-Safety guidance and advice for parents

It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe online. This page aims to inform you of the dangers and advantages of online collaboration (and using internet technologies) and signpost places you can go or procedures you can follow when things go wrong.
 
At Emerson Park Academy we run an Internet Safety educational program for students. This educational program will mainly aim to achieve the following objectives:

Inform students about the dangers of the Internet,
Educate students on how to stay safe & use Internet technologies in a safe way,
Inform students of what to do when things go wrong,
Familiarise students with Academy policies & procedures that relates to e-safety
Inform students about the consequences of cyberbullying and harassment
Educated students so they know what to do if they are being bullied or know of someone being bullied.
 
As part of the education program for Internet Safety and to further embed e-safety principles, discreet lessons on e-safety are taught in ICT in year 8 and across the age range in Life Skills.

Think U Know - Danger on the Internet




Exposed

‘Exposed’ is a 10 minute drama about a 15 year old girl called Dee. Dee makes a common mistake of many teens and sends indecent photos of herself to her boyfriend Si. Without thinking of the consequences, Si sends the photos to a friend and very quickly the images become public.

As we watch, a distressed Dee is helped through the situation by her alter-ego. Together they come to terms with the consequences of her actions and learn where to go for help and advice.

The film is available for young people, parents and teachers to watch online. It is aimed at 14 to 18 year olds although in practice teachers, trainers and parents may feel the film is suitable for those outside of this range.
