The development and expansion of the use of ICT / computing, and particularly of the internet, has transformed learning in schools. Children and young people will need to develop high level ICT / computing skills, not only to maximise their potential use as a learning tool, but also to prepare themselves as lifelong learners and for future employment.
There is a large body of evidence that recognises the benefits that the use of digital technologies can bring to teaching and learning. Schools have made a significant investment both financially and physically to ensure these technologies are available to all learners, more recently through significant investment in one to one devices.
It is important for schools, through their online safety policy and practice, to ensure that they meet their statutory obligations to ensure that children and young people are safe and are protected from potential harm, both within and outside school.
Here at St George’s we have worked hard to develop our e-Safety policy and procedures in school to meet the expected standard for accreditation by 360 Safe to gain their ICT Mark. We have met the expected in enough areas to apply for accreditation.
