Online Safety at Home
Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Chapel Break Infant School. We believe that it is hugely important for children growing up in today's digital world to know and understand how to use the internet safely.
We have therefore taken positive steps in our learning to ensure that risks are minimalized by educating and empowering our children to use the Internet with care.
'Share with care.'
Personal information is information that belongs only to you and you shouldn’t share this online. Examples of personal information include:
- Your real name
- Where you live
- Your age
- Where you go to school and any clubs you go to
- Your phone number
- Your username and password
- Pictures of yourself, your family and friends
Remember to ask a grown-up if you are unsure of what to do online.
'It's cool to be kind.'
If you are chatting to people by sending messages or on video when you are online, only chat to people who you know and trust in real-life like family and friends.
It is easy for people to pretend when they are online. They might not always be who they say they are, or say what they really mean.
- If someone says something that makes you feel worried, scared or sad, tell an adult you trust.
- If someone you don’t know tries to chat to you online, tell an adult you trust.
- Sometimes people online can be unkind. If someone says something mean online or makes you feel sad, tell a grown up you trust.
- If someone says something which makes you feel worried, scared or sad, remember you don’t have to reply. Not replying and switching off your phone, tablet or game can help you feel better.
