Smart, Safe, Responsible
eSmart is a guiding framework for schools to implement a whole-school culture and behaviour change relevant to the smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies. eSmart helps teachers, students and the whole school community embrace the benefits of technology and reduce exposure to cyberspace risks such as cyber bullying, identity theft, online predators and inappropriate images and content.
Funded by the Victorian Government, eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity committed to protecting children from violence. Registration as an eSmart School provides us with assurance that we are accessing evidence-informed practice, policies and activities.
Noble Park Primary School became an official eSmart school in 2017. Since we first registered with the program, we have introduced new policies and activities to improve the way our school manages cybersafety, bullying and cyberbullying. Our aim is for our students, staff and the wider school community to be well supported to be smart, safe and responsible users of digital technology.
We encourage everyone in the school community to continue to uphold and promote eSmart behaviours, at school and at home. If you are aware of any incidents of bullying, cyberbullying or risky online behaviour, please contact the Principal or our eSmart coordinator.
