On Wednesday 30th March 2016, pupils, staff and parents of our school attended Internet Safety sessions run by Paul Hay from PCLS Training.
Paul offered lots of advice on ways in which we can keep our children (and ourselves!) safe when using the internet. He has kindly given us permission to share useful videos and resources from his website, which you are welcome to use at home:
Vodafone’s Digital Parenting magazine also includes lots of helpful advice.
The 4 tips we would always encourage children to remember when using the internet are:
- Top Tip 1 : People you don’t know are strangers. They’re not always who they say they are.
- Top Tip 2 : Be nice to people on the computer like you would in the playground.
- Top Tip 3 : Keep your personal information private.
- Top Tip 4 : If you ever get that ‘uh oh’ feeling, you should tell a grown-up you trust.
