Electronic safety

Using technology and the internet is a fantastic way to learn new things and keep in touch with people but it is important that we all keep ourselves safe online. Remember these tops tips.

  • Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
  • Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
  • Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
  • Never give out your passwords
  • Don’t befriend people you don’t know and don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do
  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
  • Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
  • Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude
  • If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

If you are concerned about anything you see online please use the CEOP button (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) below to report any abuse.
