Keeping Safe

 

With children becoming increasingly I.C.T. literate, steps should be taken to help keep them safe online. Although we cover this in every year group, it is important to teach your child some simple rules: 

 

  • make sure your child knows not to share personal information like their phone number or email address online;

  • only talk to real life friends or family if they are on sites with a social media element like Moshi Monsters or Club Penguin;

  • use privacy settings wherever they exist to keep their information private;

  • be a good online friend and don’t say nasty things, even if it’s just a joke;

  • use secure and legal sites to download music and games;

  • check attachments and pop ups for viruses before they click or download anything;
