Stay Safe Online!


The internet is a brilliant place for learning, speaking to friends and family, and playing games. However, it is very important to understand how to use it safely and how to deal with any problems you may come across. Staying safe when using the internet and other new technologies is known as E-Safety.

E-Safety is not just about computers but also refers to other new technologies you can use to communicate with other people, such as mobile phones, iPads, and games consoles like XBOX 360s and PS3s.

Following these rules will help you to stay safe when you use the internet:

1. Never write any personal information about yourself on the internet – this includes your phone number, address, passwords and surname.

2. Only write kind, positive things about others online.

3. Never arrange to meet up with somebody you have met on the internet. Remember that if you haven’t met someone in real life, they’re still a STRANGER.

4. Always tell a responsible adult (like a parent, grandparent, older brother or sister, or a teacher in school) if you see anything on the internet which you find upsetting, offensive or in any way inappropriate. They will be able to help you.

5. NEVER add people as ‘friends’ on the internet unless you are friends with them in real life. This includes on sites and services like Bebo, Facebook, MSN/Windows Live Messenger and many more. These people are still STRANGERS.
