Cyber-Safety Division 

By Computing at Schools.

Computing at Schools, Cyber Division specialise in aiding Primary, Post-Primary and the Transition Year sectors to educate their Students, Teachers, and Parents on how to stay safe online, ensuring a culture of awareness and well-being. Our team ensures all our audiences are fully aware of the dangers that are present on the Internet. We specialise in the creation of up to date Acceptable Use Policies (AUP’s) which are a requirement for all schools.  See our comprehensive packages and competitive prices below.

Principals and teachers have a duty of care to take reasonable steps to protect students from any harm that should have reasonably been foreseen, including those that may be encountered within the online learning environment.

While advances in technology have created opportunities to engage students in the classroom in new and exciting ways they also present significant challenges.

It is essential that principals work in partnership with their staff and school community to: develop holistic policies that reflect the teaching and learning practices, strategies and technologies that are being used by teachers and students create clear processes and practices to manage the classroom and online behaviour and respond to any incidents that may arise prepare curriculum plans that explicitly teach safe, responsible and ethical online behaviours implement and raise awareness of the school’s policies, processes and plans.

Thanking you for the excellent service which you provided to our school. The teachers were extremely complimentary of the content of your cyber safety course and the manner in which it was presented. It effectively reinforced all the work that is already being done in the school through SPHE. Parents also felt that they gained great knowledge, confidence and awareness from your presentation, which we all know are key to our children's safety.

Thanks for the zoom meeting! Very interesting, and we are covering cyberbullying with first years at the moment so it was very apt. Lovely to see you again and the best of luck with the remaining classes.
