Online Safety Rules
During our weekly class assemblies and PSHE Relationships module, we will be talking to the children about how they can be responsible for keeping themselves, their families and friends safe online.
We will focus on the SMART rules: S, safe - keep all your personal information safe; M, meet - don't meet any strangers you've talked to online; A, accept - think before you accept anything online; R, reliable - not everyone is reliable and not everyone is who they seem to be; T, tell - tell a responsible adult if you feel anxious.
You can keep up to date on how to support your child on their online safety journey with the resources found here:
Online Safety Leaflets & resources - Internet Matters
Parents Protect - Internet Safety Links
We will be emphasising the importance of TAG (TELL A GROWN-UP) if children see or hear anything online that makes them feel worried or uncomfortable.
As a parent, being part of your child’s online lives will help to keep them safe and happy, so keep talking to them about what they like to do, regularly check privacy settings are switched on and reassure them that we are all on this learning journey together.
