Keeping school communities safe online
National children’s not-for-profit, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s eSmart Schools framework was developed more than 10 years ago in response to schools’ expressed need for a positive and evidence-informed framework to address issues of bullying, online bullying and online safety.
More than 2,300 schools across Australia are currently participating in eSmartSchools and adopting best practices. Participating schools are from government, Catholic and independent sectors and include primary, secondary and combined schools.
The framework provides schools with the tools and resources required to build and maintain a positive culture of bullying prevention, and teachers are supported to champion respectful behaviours and educate students and parents in online safety.
All eSmart school communities embrace technology in a smart, safe and responsible way.
