Online Safety

The internet is a wonderful place to help students discover new facts, research for homework and keep in touch with friends. There are also dangers so we encourage all students and their parents/carers to discuss e-safety and learn how they can keep safe when online.

These top tips and much more advice can be found at http://www.childnet.com/young-people/secondary:

  1. Protect your online reputation: use the services provided to manage your digital footprints and ‘think before you post.’ Content posted online can last forever and could be shared publicly by anyone.

 

  1. Know where to find help: understand how to report to service providers and use blocking and deleting tools. If something happens that upsets you online, it’s never too late to tell someone.

 

  1. Don’t give in to pressure: if you lose your inhibitions you’ve lost control; once you’ve pressed send you can’t take it back.

 

  1. Respect the law: use reliable services and know how to legally access the music, film and TV you want.

 

  1. Acknowledge your sources: use trustworthy content and remember to give credit when using others’ work/ideas.
