Staying Safe on the Internet

When you are using the internet at school or at home it is very important that you stay safe.

You have been taught at school how to stay safe when using the internet on a computer, an Ipad or a mobile phone. It is also a good idea to talk to an adult at home and they will be able to help you!

 

Remember SMART:

SAFE -  Don't give out your own information

MEET - Only meet people you have met online with your parents

ACCEPTING - Only open emails & texts from people you trust

RELIABLE - Some people online tell lies, only talk to real world friends and family

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

If you are worried about anything you see on the internet talk to an adult who you trust.
