Keeping Your Child Safe on the Internet.

Our children’s safety is our prime concern, if children are happy and safe they will learn, and become more confident as they grow in many aspects of life. As you are aware many of our children are very computer literate. They are natural users of the latest technologies and the communications revolution has made it easier to stay in contact with friends and family from all over the world at any time of the day or night.

Children and young people use a huge range of devices in and out of school.  Technologies include home PCs, lap-top computers and hand-held computers, mobile phones such as blackberries, and iphones (if not in your home, it could be at a friends home); all have the possibility of accessing the web. Specific technologies that are becoming more commonly used for communication by children outside of schools hours include email, instant messaging (MSN), chat rooms, camera phones, websites/blogs managed by children and social networking. The majority of use of these devices and web sites is safe and has the potential to greatly enrich the lives of children.  It is important however to have an awareness of the risks and issues in order to help your child become more internet aware.

To keep your child safe the following basic rules will help;

  • Encourage your child to use the computer in an agreed ‘open’ area
  • Talk to your child about what they are doing online
  • Web cams should be used carefully
  • Talk to your child about the dangers of communicating with strangers online
  • If your child receives unsuitable messages, save the messages, print them off if needed and if appropriate let the school or other authorities know.

We need to remember how to stay safe online.

Children, please remember....

  • You have the right to feel safe all the time, including when using ICT or your mobile phone.
  • If anything makes you feel scared or uncomfortable tell a responsible adult straight away. Don't be afraid you will get into trouble.
  • If you receive a nasty message or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, do not reply. Show it to a responsible adult.
  • Only email people you know, or someone who a responsible adult has approved.
  • Be respectful in your messages and emails.
  • Keep your personal details private when using ICT or a mobile phone. Your name, your family information, your journey to school, your pets and hobbies are all examples of personal information.
  • Don't show anyone photographs of yourself, friends or family without checking with a responsible adult first.
  • Never agree to meet an online friend in real life without checking with a responsible adult first.
