E-Safety

It is very important to stay safe when using the internet at home or at school. This includes any devices which use the internet (games consoles, phones, tablets, etc).  All children are taught e-safety at school and should be aware of what to do if something happens.

When using any computer, tablet or phone device remember SMART:

S- SAFE

Never give out any personal details

M- MEET

Don’t arrange meetings with people online

A- ACCEPTING

Only open emails & texts from people you trust

R- RELIABLE

Online people aren’t always who they say they are. Only talk to friends and family that you already know.

T- TELL

Tell a parent or adult you trust if something you see online makes you feel uncomfortable
