E-safety rules

The following e-safety rules will help you to stay safe when you use the internet:

1. Never write any personal information about yourself on the internet including your phone number, address, passwords and surname.

2. Be respectful! Only write kind, positive things about others online.

3. Never arrange to meet anyone you have met on the internet. If you haven’t met someone in real life, they are still a STRANGER.

4. Always tell a responsible grown up, such as a parent, grandparent, older brother or sister, or a teacher in school, if you see anything on the internet which you find upsetting, offensive or inappropriate in any way so that they can help you.

5. NEVER add people as ‘friends’ on the internet unless you are friends with them in real life. This includes on sites and services like Bebo, Facebook, MySpace, MSN/Windows Live Messenger and many more. These people are still STRANGERS.
