E-Safety for Children
The Internet is a fun place. We can play games, find information, watch videos, listen to stories and learn from thousands of different teachers all over the world.
The Internet is not always a safe place to be. Sometimes the information we find on the Internet is not correct or true. Some of the videos, stories and games are very bad.
At the beginning of each school year we teach you about E-Safety. Using the Internet responsibly, the dangers of social networking, e-mails and mobile phones. Here you can find stories, videos and links to websites to help you to remember what you have learnt in school and to find help when you need it.
First of all read the following points.
Three very important rules to follow.
They work and will help to keep you safe.
Remember the SMART rules. Click here to view the poster with SMART in full.
Can you design your own SMART poster to help other children learn the different ways to stay safe?
Report abusive behaviour. You don't have to put up with it.
What do we mean when we talk about abusive behaviour?
If someone is saying unkind things to you, using rude and bad language and being nasty, they are being abusive.
If someone is trying to get you to do something wrong you must block them and report them.
They are not your friend.
Cyberbullying - Cyberbullying is when someone uses technology (such as the internet or a mobile phone) to bully others.
Three rules to remember if you are being cyber bullied:
Don’t reply: most of the time the bully is looking for a reaction when they’re teasing or calling someone nasty names, remember not to reply, if you do you're giving the bully exactly what they want.
Save the evidence: save the evidence of any emails or text messages you receive. You don't have to look at them just save them into a folder or ask an adult to do it for you. Most smart phones have the ability to screen shot. This is so you have something to show when you do report the cyberbullying.
Tell someone: tell a trusted adult if you are being cyberbullied, they can help you, and to tell them as soon as you can in order to minimise your upset or worry.
