Online Safety

Why do we like the internet?

• It is interesting and fun.

• We can learn a lot from the internet.

• We use it for our school work.

What are the dangers of children going online?

• We could see or hear things that are not suitable for children.

• People on the internet can pretend that they are someone else.

• People could ask for personal information, which is dangerous.

• Not everybody on the internet is kind.

Why do we need an e-safety policy?

• To keep children safe whilst also having fun using the internet at home and at school.

• To make sure children know what to do if something on the internet makes them worried.

How does Forest Academy keep children safe when they use the internet at school?

• The grown-ups are always watching us when we use the internet at school.

• The grown-ups explain to us how to use the Internet safely.

• Our school filters the search results so that it is ok for children to see.

If children have a problem when they are online what should they do?

• Keep calm and tell a grown up straight away.

• Stay on the page so a grown up can see what has made us feel worried/upset.

• Block and report anyone that is being unkind.

What should they not do?

• Do not keep worries to yourself.

• Do not be unkind back to anybody.

• Do not delete messages.

• Do not switch off the computer without telling a grown-up.

Our internet rules are:

• We ask permission before using the internet and we only use websites that a grown-up has told us to use.

• We never share our passwords with anyone else.

• We must never give anyone our personal information.

• We need to tell a grown up if we see or hear something that makes us upset or worried.

• We will never look for, save or send anything that could be unpleasant or nasty
