Staying Safe Online
We teach you how to use the internet safely in school every term and every time we use the internet for learning.
Online Safety Ambassadors (Online Safety Squad)
We have Y5 children who have been chosen to be Online Safety Ambassadors to help us to stay safe too. They deliver assemblies and teach us games to help us remember the SMART rules. They meet with Mrs Cottenden to talk about their work and how they can help us even further.
Our Top Tips for staying safe online
- Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
- Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
- Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
- Never give out your passwords
- Don’t befriend people you don’t know
- Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do
- Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
- Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
- Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude
- If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
