Online Safety

We recommend some simple rules to keep younger children safe online:

 

  • Ask permission before using the Internet
  • Only use websites you have chosen together or a child-friendly search engine
  • Only email people they know (why not consider setting up an address book?)
  • Ask permission before opening an email sent by someone they don’t know
  • Do not use Internet chat rooms
  • Do not use their real names when using games on the Internet (create a nickname)
  • Never give out their home address, phone or mobile number
  • Never tell someone they don’t know where they go to school
  • Never arrange to meet someone they have ‘met’ on the Internet
  • Only use a webcam with people they know
  • Tell you immediately if they see anything they are unhappy with.
 

Go through these rules with your child and pin them up near to the computer. It is also a good idea to regularly check the internet sites your child is visiting by clicking on History and Favourites.

 

Please re-assure your child that you want to keep them safe rather than take internet access away from them.
