Esafety

Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.

Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:

 

  • Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.

 

  • Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.

  • Bullying by peers and people you might consider 'friends'
  • Seeing inappropriate or harmful content (e.g. rude or extremely violent pictures)Involvement in illegal or inappropriate content (e.g. posting sexual pictures)
  • Posting personal information that can identify and locate you offline
  • Being persuaded to do illegal or inappropriate things through contact with strangers
  • Seeing information and talking with others online who encourage self-harm
  • Seeing racist or hate material
  • Glorifying activities such as drug use or excessive drinking
  • Physical harm to young people in making video content, such as doing stunts and other risky activities

Online gaming

Remember: your online friends are not the same as your real ones. 

 

Criminals are increasingly targeting children and young people via online gaming sites, pretending to be someone who they are not. This can often lead to bullying, grooming and sexual exploitation.

 

Online games like Fortnite and Roblox can let you play with your friends and strangers from around the world. But playing with people online can also be risky.
