Here are some really useful websites to help you navigate and understand the online world our children live in:
Online Safety for Students
- Don’t post personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
- Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online, it’s not yours anymore!
- Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
- Never give out your passwords
- Don’t befriend people you don’t know
- Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online - - speak to your parent or carer about anybody suggesting you do.
- Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
- Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
- Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude.
- If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
Do you know who you are talking to?
Where to look for help and advice:
If you are worried, talk to your parents, tutor, Head of Year, Safeguarding Lead or a trusted adult.
