What should we do?
- Be good role models
- Keep e-safety issues high on the agenda
- Promote sensible behaviours
- Be aware of the child protection officer at your schools and follow the school guidance
- Read the e-safety policy for your school
When contacting your learners:
- Use a school telephone – never your own
- Use a school registered e-mail address
- Use the school VLE/Yammer for chats, forums or any other outside school interaction, social or educational
How private is your Facebook or other social networking account?
- Check your privacy settings
- Do you know all of your friends?
- Are there photos of you online that you might find a little embarrassing?
- Never be online friends with children you teach
- DO NOT share your personal views about colleagues, students or parents via your social networking pages - some of your ‘friends’ may not agree with your views and report you!
