Whilst recognising the benefits of technology, it is also important to be aware of the risks and especially to ensure that children and young people know how to use the Internet safely and responsibly.
The use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) is making a powerful contribution to teaching and learning across Wales. Internet safety, or e-Safety, is now a required element of the national curriculum in Wales for learners aged 5 to 14. Practitioners also need to be aware of how e-Safety issues affect them in the course of their work.
The Welsh Assembly Government is a member of the UK Council on Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS). Visit the UKCCIS website.
e-Safety in the ICT Self Review Framework
Dr Tanya Byron's report Safeguarding Children in a Digital Age (March 2008) included a recommendation that:
"in all schools, action is taken at a whole-school level to ensure that e-safety is mainstreamed throughout the school's teaching, learning in other practices. In particular...Government should encourage schools to use Becta's ICT self review framework assessment to drive continual improvement in schools' use of ICT including with regard to e-Safety."
We are providing grant support through the Better Schools Fund for local authorities to help their schools to use the Becta ICT Self Review Framework.
Visit the Becta site for more information about the Self Review Framework.
