ESafety Information Evening

ESafety information evening Monday 5 February 2018 6 – 6.30pm 

Having access to technology on a daily basis offers up many benefits. For most of us, it would be impossible to live without it. However, as technology moves on at such a pace, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the new developments and trends, particularly with regards to mobile technologies and safe and secure accessibility to online material. At The Carlton Academy, we work to provide high quality guidance for students in relation to the dangers of being online through our curriculum, DRIVE assemblies and ECO days. 

ESafety is an important part of keeping students safe at The Carlton Academy. We have extensive security measures in place in the academy, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard students from potential dangers or unsuitable material. However, we can only be successful in keeping students safe online if we work with you to ensure the ESafety message is consistent.

Your help is needed to discuss with your children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. Children can accidentally or deliberately be exposed to unpleasant and unwanted content or comments online and there are steps you can take at home to minimise this risk. For this reason, an information evening has been organised to help you to contribute to the process of helping your child to be aware of the potential risks associated with using technologies. Ofsted increasingly view Parents ESafety Awareness events as essential components of effective safeguarding provision and I would therefore appreciate your support in attending this event. The event will be taking place on Monday 5 February 2018 6 – 6.30pm in the Theatre and I would encourage you to come along with your child. 

The evening will be focusing on digital wellbeing and relationships to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire. The evening offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. Get involved to play your part! The event will last approximately 30 minutes and members of the Business and IT Faculty, as well as students, will address the factors mentioned above and help support working safely together.
