ONLINE Safety

We follow the SMART Rules to keep safe when we use the internet.

Keep SAFE by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your full name, email address, phone number, home address, photos or school name – to people you are chatting with online.

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.

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

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.

There has recently been information in the press about the dangerous 'Momo Challenge'. Please click here to find out more and in line with all online safety advice we would suggest that parents are encouraged to:

             Ensure they know what their children can access online

             Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know

             Tell their children no-one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do

             Use parental controls to keep children safe

 Among the most common signs to watch out for include children who:

             Become very secretive, especially about what they are doing online

             Are spending a lot of time on the internet and social media

             Are switching screens on their device when approached

             Are withdrawn or angry after using the internet or sending text messages

             Have lots of new phone numbers or email addresses on their devices
