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 each year and should be aware of what to do if something happens.
Talk to an adult if you are worried about anything you see on the internet.
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
