Online Safety - A Pupils' Guide

Be SMART on the Internet


Safe

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and passwords.

Meeting

Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do do with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.

Accepting

Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems - they may contain viruses or nasty messages!

Reliable

Someone online might lie about who they are, and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other website, books or someone who knows.

Tell

Tell your parent, carer, teacher or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. You can report online abuse to the police at www.thinkuknow.co.uk

Some useful websites to help you know more about staying safe online:


Safety Net is a charity which helps children and young people feel safe and confident

Young people like you, tell us they worry about things like bullying, friendships, feeling safe at home, and more. We help you by listening to these worries and finding ways together, to manage them. We can share ideas about what you can do to feel better and braver.


The Childnet Hub for young people aged 11-16 has lots of topics to help you to stay safe online.


On the UK Safer Internet Centre you will find films, games, quizzes and advice to help you to use the internet safely, responsibly and positively.



We also highly recommend referral to CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection) which provides clear, easy to follow guidance from the Police.

Please visit the Safety Centre at www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre or www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents


The National Online Safety website has plenty of useful guides and top-tips to online activity and social media channels.

You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook, where they have live updates on a regular basis.


Internet Matters is another great website with lots of age specific guides to help keep your child safe online. We have a few for you to download here:
