Online Safety @ Duloe

Technology is integral to the lives of children and young people.  The internet, other digital information and communication technologies can promote creativity and assist with the development of key social skills. Conversely, it can also provide a medium whereby inappropriate mail such as pornography and abusive images can filter through, cyber bullying can take place and on line grooming by predators can occur.  These are just some of the potential risks for children and young people.
 

At DULOE SCHOOL we want to make sure that we are doing all we can to help to protect individuals, families and communities to stay safe online, and promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people.

  •  Do you use the same password for all of your online accounts such as banking,  shopping, and social  media?
  •  How unique are your passwords are they simply your date of birth, mother’s  maiden name  or the  name of your nearest and dearest?
  •  How much information about yourself do you share online?
  •  Who has control over what photos, images or stories about you are being added   to   social media?
  •  Who has access to this information? You, your friends or everyone?
This is what e-safety is all about, recognising the risks and
knowing what we can do to protect ourselves and our families online.
 

 Cornwall SCB pledge to highlight:

  • The risks about potential hazards when using technology
  • The risks of how others may behave online, what the dangers are of sharing  personal details and unsafe meeting arrangements
  • Making clear what the rules are for lawful, safe and responsible online activity - including the making and sharing of images
  • What steps to take and where to report an online incident
