With the use of the internet commonplace these days it's important that we all teach our children how to stay safe.
At school, our Internet is taken from a supplier who takes all reasonable steps to make sure our pupils don't see inappropriate materials whilst in school. However, we also realise that children these days have access to the intenet outside school and we've published these few guidelines to help you help your children be safe on the web.
There are a few basic rules to follow and these include:-
- Don't publish personal details, such as your full name, your address, your phone number or what school you go to.
- Don't send pictures of yourself or family to people you don't know.
- Never arrange to meet someone you've only met online.If you don't know them, don't go.
- Tell an adult if you are worried or upset about anything.
- Don't open emails from anyone you don't know.
- If you receive an email or message that upsets you, keep it and show it to an adult. Don't delete it.
- Only add people you know to your friends list on social networking sites. Even if they're a 'friend of a friend'. You might not know or like them.
