In our school we are values led. These values are integrated into how children and staff use the internet, in a positive way. SMART is a strong thread through our teaching and learning. Every year Safer Internet Day provides an opportunity for the school community to engage with the positive and negative aspects of the online world through lessons, assemblies and parent workshops. We acknowledge that due to the nature of computing and the internet, that the dialogue with our children and parents needs to continually evolve and adapt.
A better Internet starts with you…
IT STARTS WITH STAYING SAFE ONLINE
Keep your personal information safe and check with an adult before you share anything online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and passwords.
Never agree to meet up with someone you only know online. No matter how friendly they might seem or how well you think you know them, they are still a stranger. Always tell a trusted adult if someone online asks to meet up.
IT STARTS WITH BEING A GOOD FRIEND
Remember that behind every screen is a real person. Being kind and positive online is just as important as being kind and positive face-to-face.
IT STARTS WITH SAYING SORRY
Even when we’re trying really hard to be a good friend online, things can still go wrong. If you ever upset someone online, even if it wasn’t on purpose, then saying sorry is a really powerful and positive action to take.
IT STARTS WITH TAKING A STEP BACK.
Being online is great – there are so many fun and exciting things to do! However, being connected all the time can get a little stressful. If being online is making you feel worried, upset or confused, it’s always worth taking a step back and having a break from your online activities. Check out Red and Murphy talking about this in this special SID TV video.
IT STARTS WITH ASKING FOR HELP
It’s okay to feel worried or upset by something you see online – just make sure you speak to someone about it! Always tell an adult you trust if you see anything that worries you online.
