E-Safety for Children
It is really important to keep yourself safe whilst you are online, but it's hard to know how to keep safe. Here are our tips and tricks we use to being safe online:
If you get upset by anything, show a trusted adult.
Don't accept friend requests from people you don't know.
Do not talk to people you don't know.
Ask yourself "Are your parents/carers happy you're on that website?"
Never give out personal information.
Keep your password a secret.
Think about what pictures you want people to see. Once they're up there, everyone can see them.
Not everyone is who they say they are. Double check that person is your friend.
Never meet up with people you've met online.
