Online Safety

Rigby Hall Online Safety and Safeguarding

Terms such as, 'online', 'communication technologies' and 'digital technologies', refer to all fixed and mobile technologies that children may encounter, now and in the future, which allow them access to content and communications that could raise e-safety issues or pose risks to their wellbeing and safety.

The term 'safeguarding' is defined in relation to e-safety as the process of limiting risks to children when using technology. 

This section seeks to provide guidance and support to parents, carers and pupils, to keep pupils safe and secure when interacting with e-technology within school, and for supporting the home environment.
