What can I do to stay safe online?
ICT is an everyday part of people’s lives and schools are making increasing use of new technology.
At Smawthorne Henry Moore, we have systems in place to protect your children. We teach you as children how to stay safe when using technology and working online.
1. People you don't know online are strangers just like they are in person. People on the internet are not always who they say they are.
2. Be nice and respectful to people online just as you would in person. Always remember that your digital footprint remains- the evidence of your online presence will always be out there.
3. Keep your personal data and information private.
4. If you ever get a bad feeling about something online then always speak to an adult.
