Welcome to the information hub of the Highland E-Safety Group!
Through this site we aim to share information, news, views and resources for professionals and interested parties in Highland.
There are now dedicated pages on the Highland Council website with information for Parents / Carers and Children & Young People. Through a Service Level Agreement with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre we have also embedded a special ‘Report Abuse’ button.
Please feel free to leave a comment or if you have a news item, training or resource request please get in touch with Eliz MacIntosh or Louise Jones
The E-Safety Strategy Group was initially created to implement part of the Highland Child Protection Work Plan. The group formed in 2008 with the purpose of setting out the vision, principles and framework for the E-Safety Strategy, this was set out in a report which was approved by The Highland Council Education, Culture and Sport Service Commitee in November 2008.
Our vision is to ensure that we train as many professionals as possible to be able to educate and advise children and young people in Highland to use the internet safely and responsibly. The E-Safety Strategy has evolved to be a contributor the newly developed Highland ECS ICT Strategy. We strive to be as innovative and creative as possible in our approaches, and also responsive to emerging technologies.
The E-Safety Strategy Group is a partnership between the following organisations:
- The Highland Council, Education, Culture and Sport Service
- Highland Child Protection Commitee
- NHS Highland
- Northern Constabulary
- High Life Highland
- CEOP and Education Scotland who have provided invaluable support.
Thank you to all the above organisations and partners who have participated in shaping the strategy.
