Internet Safety

Electronic equipment and the internet are part of everyday life now.  This means that it is essential  for adults and children alike, to know how to use and enjoy today’s technology safely.

The first half term of this school year, all children have been really thinking about esafety.
Internet safety is not just about using a computer. It covers anything  you can use to communicate with. Mobile phones, tablets, ipods, kindles, game concoles and even  TVs, are all electronic equipment covered by esafety.

Links and Reminders

Below you will find useful links to some of the sites the children have been looking at.

S.M.A.R.T

Safe
Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.

 

Meeting
Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.

 

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 viruses or nasty messages!

 

Reliable
Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family

 

Tell
Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
