E-Safety
Parent Info

    The Internet can be a wonderful resource used by children to research, communicate and play interactive games. Any child is old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard and literally access the world. That's why it's important to be aware of what children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online. Just like any safety issue, it's wise to talk with children about our concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities.

    Internet Matters

     

    ZIP IT, BLOCK IT & FLAG IT

     

    Zip It!

    Don’t tell anyone your information like, your name, your password, your phone number or your email address, because it’s not safe! It’s important to ZIP IT and not tell anyone your personal information because it might not be someone you think is and they might pretend to be you! Olivia & Niamh 4M This week we had an e-safety day. I learnt about keeping safe. One of the rules was called ZIP IT! I learnt that you can’t share your password with anyone otherwise they will try to go on to your account. Amelia 4M. We wouldn’t go up to a stranger and tell them our personal details so we shouldn’t tell anyone on the internet, e-mails or texts either! The e-safety rule is ZIP IT! Grace B 4H

     

    Block-It!

    There are some people who might pretend to be your friend and send you nasty messages, but they are NOT your friends and if this happens you must BLOCK IT!

    Flag it!

    ‘Flag it’ means if anything is worrying you or you are unsure about something then you need to flag it up and tell a responsible adult. If you are anxious about an email or attachment you receive then don’t open it! Instead you must flag it up and tell your mum or dad. If someone says something online or you see or hear anything that you think is wrong or makes you feel uncomfortable then you must “Flag it Up!” Dylan & Teague 6MD. FLAG IT: means that you must tell an adult about a text message or message of any kind that might have nasty words or a virus. Nasty words will upset you and a virus might damage your computer, phone, i-pad, tablet etc. Jack S

     

    BEING SMART

    S means safety. Don’t answer to people messages that you don’t know. Luke 2G

     

    M means that you shouldn’t meet up with anyone from the internet. Hannah 2G

     

    A means accepting - If you are playing on the internet, phone or Ipad when a message comes up and it’s someone you don’t know, don’t accept. Only accept messages from your friends. Adam 3V Don’t open  emails from strangers because they may say something or send something nasty to you. Daisy 3A          

    R means reliable - Don’t talk to someone you don’t know. They might not tell you their right name. Some people pretend they are other people and ask you your address, email, name and surname. They could do something that is not very kind. You shouldn’t go on anything without your parents knowing. Sylvie and Naomi 3V    

    T means Tell someone - When you are on Club Penguin and a penguin wants to be your friend you should always tell an adult. Elodie 3V If you feel uncomfortable with something you should tell an adult straight away and they will sort it out for you. Eloise 3V Tell someone if you are going to go onto the computer because something might happen that you don’t know, Raife & Jacob 3A.
