St. Cuthbert's RC High School e-Safety

e-Safety is a child-safety issue and not an ICT issue. It is a part of safeguarding in schools. For example, cyber bullying is considered alongside real-world bullying. In an increasingly digital age we need to be proactive in protecting stakeholders from the potential dangers.



  •   To empower students to take responsibility for staying safe online.

  •   To equip parents/carers with the skills to ensure e-safety in and out of the home


  •   To provide staff with the skills and knowledge to both teach and be aware of e-

    Safety issues.

  •   To ensure that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and adhered to.

    Roles and Responsibilities
