Online Safety

 

Remember that you should always ask permission from an adult when you are using the Internet.  Never give out your personal details.  If you see anything you don't like on the internet, or anyone makes you feel uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult immediately.  They can report it to CEOP using this link to help you stay safe online.

 

Remember, that no internet search engine is completely safe

 

 

Here are some useful links to help you stay safe online:

Follow our SMART rules: 5 Top Tips to stay safe online!

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.

Meet: 

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, images 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 by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.

Tell: 

Tell a 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.
