E-Safety

The internet is often an integral part of children's lives. It opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.

Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

E-Safety skills are skills for life. If a child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so - particularly from those people who might seek them out to harm them.

Watch e-safety messages created by local young people

SSCB has sponsored an e-safety award as part of Shropshire Council's Create IT Awards. Pupils from across the county competed to produce the best e-safety message for children and young people and/or their parents, using any type of software. Watch the winning entries here.
