Throughout the academic year E-safety lessons are delivered to our pupils. They cover a variety of aspects such as cyberbullying, talking to strangers, spam e-mails etc.

These sessions link to the five SMART rules to keep ourselves safe:

S = Safe Safe - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information ? such as your full name, email address, phone number, home address, photos or school name ? to people you are chatting with online.
M = Meeting Meeting - 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.
A = Accepting 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!
R = Reliable Reliable - Information you find on the internet may not be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are.
T = Tell 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.

Net Aware

NSPCC and O2 worked together to find out what parents thought about the social networks that children use. They also asked young people what they thought.

As part of their belief in helping parents know how to keep their children safe online, they wanted to develop a guide, primarily aimed at parents of 8-12 year olds, about the social networks, apps or games with an interactive element that children use most frequently. They have now created a guide to provide parents with the information they need to understand their child's online world and help them keep their children safe online. 

We would like to encourage our parents to explore the guide and see what other parents and children are saying about the sites, and form their own views about the appropriateness of popular sites. We hope that Net Aware can help give our parents the confidence to have balanced and informed conversations about what their children are doing online.

Share Aware

To kids, online life is real life. And, just like in real life, kids need help to stay safe online.

Share Aware is an NSPCC and O2 campaign to help parents have regular and informed conversations with their child about online safety. We're aiming to get every family in the UK chatting about their kids' online world, just like they would about their day at school.
We tell children that?s it?s good to share, but online it?s different and sometimes it can be dangerous. Through our straight-forward, step-by-step advice and Icebreaker email series, we?ll show parents how to untangle the web and teach children how to make the right decisions online, even when parents aren?t there

The internet is a great place for kids to be, being Share Aware makes it safer.
