Digital Safeguarding

Staying safe on-line

The internet can be an interesting and fun place to spend time, it can also be a dangerous place if you are not sensible and/or don’t know how to stay safe online.

We actively teach our students about personal security guidelines, which includes:

  • Never revealing personal information, about themselves or others, such as home addresses, telephone numbers and personal e-mail addresses etc.
  • Never using photographs of themselves on their web pages unless parents/guardians have given permission to do so.
  • Never meeting people in person that they have contacted on the internet without a parent/guardian’s permission.
  • Notify their teacher whenever they come across information that appears dangerous, inappropriate, or makes them feel uncomfortable.
  • Be aware that the author of an e-mail or web page may not be the person they claim to be.
