Online Safety for Students
The internet is an amazing place with so many fun and exciting things to do!
We need to remember to act respectfully, responsibly and stay safe online.
It will be an important part of your learning as you move through primary and high school.
Remember all the school rules and enjoy learning, playing, browsing and searching.
The designated member of staff to contact with any safeguarding issues is Ms Browning.
Online safety rules are posted in all rooms with Internet access and discussed with the pupils as appropriate at the start of each year. Students are informed that network and Internet use will be monitored.
Top tips for staying safe online!
- Always ask a grown up before you use the internet.
- Do not give out your password, except to responsible adults in your family.
- Don’t share your full name, date of birth, home address, phone number or any other personal information, unless a trusted adult has given permission.
- Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
- Tell a grown up if somebody says something to you, sends you something, or you see something that makes you uncomfortable, don’t look around or explore; get your parents instead – they know what to do.
- Be kind and polite to everyone online - Do not post, make or share unkind, hurtful or rude messages and comments.
- Be aware that some websites, games and social networks have age restrictions and you should respect them.
- Don't believe everything that you see or read online. Question it. Check it. Ask for help.
Not everyone online is who they say they are and we have to be very careful. The best thing to do is to only talk online to people you know in real life like your school friends or family.
- Never arrange to meet someone that you have only ever previously met on the internet.
- Make sure that you THINK before you post. Remember that posts and messages can be shared and might stay online forever.
