The Department for Education states:
The internet provides children and young people with a wealth of opportunities for their entertainment, communication and education. But there are also risks of harm through the deliberate behaviour of others online, and through exposure to inappropriate content.
As children grow up in an increasingly digital world, they need to be aware of the risks they face online. Everyone can play a part in keeping children safe and the internet industries have a particular responsibility to create tools and information to help.
Our mission at Toner is to make sure the internet is a great and safe place for children to use to support development and learning. We want our children to be responsible and safe users of online technologies and know the steps to take if it becomes an unsafe environment to work and play in.
E-safety is embedded in our computing curriculum and we hold additional sessions which are delivered by local authority specialists so that children (and parents) are further aware of the risks and dangers which can present themselves when using ICT.
