Esafety

The Internet is a fantastic resource filled with so many wonderful things to see and do. It's a great way to learn about things, play games and keep in touch with people you have met, know and trust.

 

It can also be a bit scary too because not everyone you talk to on the internet is your friend. There are rules you must always follow to keep yourself safe. 

 

Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

 

Learn these simple rules to play it S.M.A.R.T. on the internet:

 

S = SAFE

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your name, email, phone number, home address, school name to people who you don’t know or trust online.

M = MEETING

Meeting someone you have only just been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parent’s or carer’s permission and even then only when they can be present.

A = ACCEPTING

Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain nasty messages or viruses.

R = RELIABLE

Someone online might be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet might not be correct.

T = TELL

Tell you parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable while using the internet

 

Here are some websites which contain games quizzes, videos and advice about keeping yourself safe online:

Tips for staying safe online:

 

· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.

 

· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you. A link to the CEOP reporting centre is below for you to look at with your family if you are worried.
