E-Safety Policy & Staying Safe Online
The City of Liverpool College recognises the benefits and opportunities that new technologies offer to all students and staff.
We encourage the use of technology, not only to enhance students’ learning experience but also to promote skills and achievement. However, the accessible and global nature of the internet and associated technologies means that we are also aware of the potential risks faced and challenges involved.
Our approach is to implement safeguards within the college which will support staff and students to manage any potential risks and to deal with these risks independently. We believe that this can be achieved through a combination of security measures, training, guidance and implementation of our associated policies.
The technologies encompassed within this policy include all computer based technologies, online communication technologies, digital technologies both fixed and mobile.
In addition, we will do all that we can to ensure that all of our students and staff stay e-safe within our duty of care and within the Every Citizen Matters framework.
This E-Safety Policy should be read in conjunction with other relevant policies, in particular the college Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for computer equipment, the Social Media Guidelines (Appendix B), the Bullying and Harassment Policy, the Staff Disciplinary and Dismissal Policy and the Student Code of Conduct (Appendix C).
