E-Safety

Every day children are using technology at home and school. The Internet is becoming one of the most widely used learning tools. Children in school are receiving regular lessons on e-safety to encourage them to think about their own safety while online. The children’s use of the Internet is closely supervised while at school. Attending our E-Safety talks and talking to your children about the SMART rules below will help to keep your child cyber-safe.

Smart

Safe

Stay safe by being careful not to give out personal information to people on on-line.

Meeting

Meeting someone who you have only been in touch with on-line can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ permission and only when they can accompany you.

Accepting

Accepting emails, instant messages or opening files and pictures 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 on-line may be lying about who they are.

Tell

Tell your parent, carer or an adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied on-line.
