Staying Safe Online
Online Safety for children
We strongly encourage children to: Stop, Tell and Block to stay safe online.
- Stop clicking and take your device to an adult.
- Tell the adult what you have seen that has made you sad or made you feel uncomfortable.
- Block: The teachers will block this site, so that nobody else will have to see the same thing.
Remember – nothing online should make you feel sad or uncomfortable, don’t ignore it, Stop, Tell and Block.
We want you to have fun and enjoy the range of technology you have available to you, but we also want you to be safe, at school and at home.

Always remember the Internet SMART Rules:
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.
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. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
Accepting emails, private messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.
Tell a 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.
You can also call ‘Childline’ on: 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.
