Staying safe on-line
E-Safety is very important at our school. It is not just adults that need to know how to stay safe
online. We talk about being safe online lots in lessons and in special E-Safety days.
The internet is great because: We can learn lots of things; We can have lots of fun; It can help us with our school work, We can stay in touch with close friends and family.
Some dangers are: Cyber bullying- Sending nasty texts messages and emails, swearing on games we can talk on and calling each other names; Stranger danger- Some people we could talk to online we might not even know, so they are strangers; Bad language- Sometimes when we are online, we can see or hear swear words that can upset us and others; Things we can see online- Some things online are not ok for children to look at. Viruses- Some emails or things we download can have viruses in them that can break our computers or steal information.
How should we act on the internet?
S – Keep your personal information SAFE and SECURE.
M – Do not agree to MEET anyone from the internet; they may not be who we think they are.
A – Do not ACCEPT messages or emails from anybody we do not know.
R – REMEMBER, do not always trust the information you see online; it may not be true or correct.
T – TELL a trusted adult in school or at home if something upsets or worries us online
