We held a Parents’ E-Safety workshop. The workshop focussed on how you can keep your child safe on the internet.
You can see the presentation here.
Staying Safe Online
ICT makes learning fun and makes communicating with friends and family easily, but it does have a downside. You need to understand the dangers and stay SMART!
Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your name, email, phone number, home address, or school name – to people who you don’t trust online.
Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present.
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.
Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable.
Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried. You can report online abuse to the police at: www.thinkuknow.co.uk
