Welcome to the eSafety Section of the KES website. The purpose of this section is to give a range of useful information regarding eSafety.
Technology has become so ingrained in our day-to-day lives it is important to ensure our students are aware of the dangers surrounding technology and the implications surrounding how they present themselves online. We have started seeing more and more issues crop up, where students are unaware of the further reaching consequences of their actions.
Our goal is that the information contained on this page provides helpful information to keep students and parents safe and informed.
Think U Know is an excellent website on eSafety. It runs through a range of eSafety issues which students face every day. Students can select their age range and look through appropriate and relevant content to help them stay informed and stay safe online. There are also parent / carer sections which look at issues surrounding talking to students and different strategies to keep students safe.
Net Aware is a useful tool for checking the apps students are using. Using this website, a parent / carer can look up the apps that a student is using. It gives an overview of the app, along with an insight into anything extra the parent / carer may need to be aware of.
The NSPCC has a wealth of information on eSafety. These pages contain specific information on eSafety for students and adults. This website also contains the NSPCC eSafety hotline details where students and adults can get more information about eSafety.
CEOP is the reporting function used when a student feels they are in a situation online which is potentially dangerous. The CEOP website is there for students to report websites / users who are making them feel uncomfortable. If a student is being harassed online, they can report it here.
