Think Smart online
|S||Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your name, email, phone number, home address, or school name – to people who you don’t trust online.|
|M||Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present.|
|A||Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.|
|R||Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable.|
|T||Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried. You can report online abuse to the police via the Think You Know website.|
It is very important that children are safe using the internet at home and school. At Pikemere we have a strict policy which everyone follows. We have added links to a variety of policies and websites for children to use which will enable them to interact in a safe way.
