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.
Toora Primary School became an official eSmart school in 2012. Since we first registered with the program, we have introduced many new policies and activities to improve the way our school manages cybersafety, bullying and cyberbullying. We feel confident our students, staff and the wider school community are now 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.

How eSmart fits into our Toora Primary School Child Safe Standards
eSmart Policy and Use of ICT Guidelines
The eSmart policy relates to the use of Information and Communication
Technology (ICT) at Toora Primary School. There are an accompanying set
of guidelines for the smart, safe and responsible use of ICT at TPS.
Student eSmart Agreement
The ‘Student eSmart Agreement’ outlines the appropriate and safe use of computers, Internet and portable devices at Toora Primary School. This document reinforces the cybersafety training that occurs throughout the school.
No student at Toora PS is permitted to use any ICT until this document has been signed by a parent and returned to the class teacher. Students in Year 1 and above must also complete the ‘Student Declaration’ section of the agreement.
