National Online Safety 

 

The Internet is an exciting tool to use!  At school, we talk a lot about E-safety.  It is important that you remember all the different ways of keeping yourself safe online.

 

 

  • Don't give out personal information such as your full name, email address, phone number, photos or school name.
  • If something online makes you uncomfortable, tell a responsible adult.
  • If you or someone you know is being bullied online, tell a responsible adult.
  • Don't open e-mails, files, or Web pages that you get from people you don't really know or trust.
  • Don't share passwords with others.
  • Follow rules and guidelines you are given for using the Internet.

Tips for staying safe online:

  • Know how to use the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you. For more information on CEOP and how to make a report, please click here.
