The online world is part of our daily lives and gives us all access to a wealth of information, educational and recreational resources and endless activities.  For digital learners, online technology provides many exciting opportunities which undoubtedly come with associated risks. It is important to understand the risks posed when children access and use online technologies and manage these risks appropriately.

The ICT Service Elearning Team has been actively addressing this theme for some time now and encourages the use of a secure learning environment in primary schools.

Additionally, we have developed ACE (Accredited Competence in E-safety) - an age appropriate curriculum to support teachers in embedding e-safety messages whilst children learn to 'swim' safely in the 'digital swimming pool', which is given free to those schools subscribing to Starz+ - the Local Authority's approved Learning Platform.
