We teach internet safety

Here are some resources we use with parents and children:

Internet advice to parents

What Interteddy told Class 1 and 2

The big ideas we teach at school are:

Don’t give out personal information without talking to parents and carers first. What kind of information? Address, email address, phone number, bank account details. But even your real name, age, photograph. Obviously don’t go and meet someone you only know from the internet (FIFA, COD & other XBOX and PS games; instagram, facebook, chatrooms, forums)

Be polite – follow netiquette:

  • be positive in comments;
  • never write anything to hurt others – don’t write some thing to them, don’t write something about them;
  • don’t shout or swear;
  • if you copy something, say where you found it (don’t claim you made it yourself)
  • if someone upsets you, explain what upset you (don’t upset them back – that just makes them want to upset you more); copy what they wrote; tell an adult or report it online;
  • if you want to ask a question on a forum, check the FAQ (frequently asked questions first).

Tell a parent or carer if something upsets or worries you.It can be sorted out.

Think before you press Enter. Only post things online, in chats and instant messaging that you are happy for ANYONE to read (eg your parents, grandparents, teachers, boss). You never know when someone might see what you write. You never know how long it will stay there.
