Our Online safety Rules

Please remind your children of these rules when they are working online.

  • I will only use ICT equipment when I have been given permission to.
  • When going on the internet I will only go on pages saved in the favourites or search for things I have been given permission to search for.
  • I will never share my Learning Platform password with anyone else.
  • I will always be kind and polite when sending messages.
  • If I find anything I am not sure about on the internet I will hide the page and tell an adult straight away.
  •  I will always tell my teacher if something I am not sure about happens when I am on the computer.
  • When using the ipads I will only use apps which are on the desktop.
  • I will always ask permission before taking someone else’s photograph or using someone else’s photograph.

Making sure your children's devices are set up safely will help you to make sure they get the best out of their device. The website www.internetmatters.org has some great advice, simple instructions and helpful tips on just about every device, Wi-Fi provider and games console to help you keep your children safe at home.
