Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of our curriculum as it provides the ability to protect and educate children in their use of technology as well as having appropriate tools in place to support any incident where appropriate.

Please explore the information on this page linked to how you can keep safe whilst using the internet in a positive and responsible way.

Follow the SMART Rules to keep safe online:

S – SAFE: Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information to people. This means your full name, home address, home phone number, your school name plus many more.

M – MEETING: Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. How do you know that they are who they say they are? You should never meet up with someone you have met online.

A – ACCEPTING: Accepting emails, instant messages like face-chat, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain dangerous viruses. If in doubt delete it and then find a grown up you trust and tell them.

R – RELIABLE: Information you find on the internet may not be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are.

T – TELL: Tell your parents/carers or a trusted grown up if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried online. Examples of trusted adults could be your teacher, caretaker, volunteers, office staff or your headteacher.

 

Safer Internet Day 2022 is on 8th February and will be celebrated with the theme ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.
