Staying Safe Online...

Our own school community eSafety campaign is called ResponsibleIT. It keeps parents and carers, and members of the wider school community up to date with help and advice for staying safe online. Why not join us? Go to Twitter and search for @berkswellschool

We also have a ‘Report eSafety Concern’ panic button on our homepage for use by children who wish to report anything they are worried about when online, be it nasty emails, inappropriate content, contact from strangers etc. This is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How to stay SMART

Staying Safe Online

Safe

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.

Meet

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

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.

Reliable

Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows.

Tell

Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
