Policy

Our job is not to “prepare” kids for something; our job is to help kids learn to prepare themselves for anything.

Cybersafety

Cybersafety refers to online behaviour that is safe, appropriate and responsible.

To help prevent cybersafety incidents, students are taught how to:

  • use technology appropriately and responsibly.
  • behave in ways to enhance their own safety.

Each school will have a set of policies relating to ICT and online use.

In Queensland state secondary schools the focus is on digital identity management.

Within Education Queensland, the Cybersafety and Reputation Management team plays a key role in maintaining the integrity of the department's reputation with regards to cybersafety and reputation management issues.

Independent schools will each have their own policy framework and Catholic Schools in Queensland will have a set of Disosican policies.

Nationally, the focus is on cyberbullying, illegal content and image abuse and this is coordinated by the esafety commissioner and collates a wide range of classroom resources.
