E-Safety Rules for Children

  • Your parents should know what you are doing on-line and on your mobile phone and who you are talking to. They will respect your independence but need to know you are behaving in a safe and sensible manner.
  • Teach your parents any new ICT techniques you know – keep them up to date with what you are learning so you can share and improve together.
  • Keeping the computer in a family room means that you can share your on-line experiences with your family – and that way if anything inappropriate happens they are there for you.
  • Never give out personal details to on-line friends or over the phone-– personal information includes your messenger ID, email address, mobile number and any pictures of yourself, your family or your friends.
  • You need to remember that if you publish a picture or video online and by phone, anyone can change or share it including the family of the person you are ‘texting’ or communicating with. If you would not want their parents to see it or read it – don’t send it!
  • If you receive spam/junk email and texts, never believe them, or reply to them or use them.
  • It’s not a good idea for you to open files that are from people you don’t know. You don’t know what they might contain – it could be a virus, or worse – an upsetting image or film.
  • You must understand that some people lie on-line and therefore it’s better to keep on-line mates on-line. You should never meet up with any strangers without having a trusted adult with you.
  • Tell someone if something or someone is making you feel uncomfortable or worried – and it is never too late to tell or report it. Remember being unkind, rude or threatening on-line or over the phone is bullying – tell someone if you are being ‘cyber-bullied’. Tell someone at school – we will listen and help.
  • Learn how to block someone on line and how to report them if you feel uncomfortable.
