Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Online safety story
Tips for staying safe online:
- Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
Important information for parents/carers
As online availability and activity increases providing fantastic opportunities for children to contact friends and family, learn and explore, it is important parents/carers know how to keep them safe online. As well as being taught in school, it is important for parents/carers to talk about what activities your child is engaging in online, who they are talking with and how they are keeping themselves safe. Regularly review security and safety settings, be vigilant against fraud and scams, whilst managing the amount of time being spent online especially if unsupervised.
