Free to be me - Safer Internet day 2020

Online Safety

School Online Safety Rules

This is how we stay safe when we use computers:

  •  I will ask a teacher / an adult if I want to use the computer
  • I will only use activities that the teacher /an adult has told or allowed me to use.
  • I will take care of the computer and other equipment
  • I will ask for help from the teacher / an adult if I am not sure what to do or if I think I have done something wrong.
  • I will not change any of the settings on the computer or tablet.
  • I will tell the teacher / an adult if I see something that upsets me on the screen.
  • I understand that the school will monitor what I look at on the internet.
  • I know that if I break the rules I might not be allowed to use a computer.

 

Using the internet can be fun and also help with your learning.

However, it is vital that you stay safe when using the internet and new technology.
