The internet is an amazing thing! At school we use the internet on a regular basis as part of our learning and teaching. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

Here is some advice on using the internet safely:

  • Always ask permission before using the Internet
  • Only send emails to your friends.
  • Only go to internet sites that you know are safe.
  • Be careful what you type into a search engine.
  • Never tell anyone your name, address, telephone number over the Internet.
  • Always tell your parents or teacher if you are upset by something you see on the Internet.

Our computer network at school is safeguarded against inappropriate content. Unfortunately, computers at home might not have the same level of safety. Always follow the advice above when you are using the Internet. That way, you will stay safe and protect yourself and those around you.

You are not allowed to have a page on social networking sites such as Facebook. If you have one with your parent or carers permission, you can do some things to make it a bit safer:

  • Set the highest security so that your details, pictures etc cannot be seen by just anybody.
  • Use a made up name so that only people who really know you can find you.
  • Only accept as friends, people you really know, remember that although somebody says they are 12 year old on the Internet, they might not really be 12!

You can play the games on the Internet Safety page to learn more about how to keep safe when using thew Internet.
