Keeping Children Safe Online
At our school we ensure that our children are taught the basic tips of Internet Safety in every year group.
4 Top Tips they need to remember.
- Top Tip 1 : People you don’t know are strangers. They’re not always who they say they are.
- Top Tip 2 : Be nice to people on the computer like you would in the playground.
- Top Tip 3 : Keep your personal information private.
- Top Tip 4 : If you ever get that ‘uh oh’ feeling, you should tell a grown-up you trust.
We also held sessions for parents. It is important for all parents to learn about how children use the internet so they can carry on the discussion with their own children at home.
Paul has provided links to useful sites to learn more about Internet Safety and watch other related videos. Here is the site
Paul is also happy for parents to contact him with any questions you may have.
"Digital Parenting" magazine
An organisation called Parentzone have created a great magazine for parents to help them understand how young people use the internet and provide help.
