Online Safety

Being online and using the internet is just like being in the real world - you can chat to people, play games and share pictures. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say nasty things to you which upset you, or you may see something that you don’t like.


If this happens, you must remember that it’s not your fault.


Always tell a trusted adult straight away if you are upset or worried about something that has happened online.


Helping you remain safe when using the Internet and teaching you how to react to any potential problems is extremely important. The information on this page will help you to: Be safe. Be smart. Have fun online.


Remember: follow the SMART Rules 

What to do if you need help


If you have any concerns or worries about something you have seen or heard on the internet remember you can get help by:

Safer Internet Day 2017


Today, 7th February, we are celebrating Safer Internet Day, with the theme ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’ with a focus on ‘The Power of Image’, looking at the ways people use image and video to communicate with each other.


The film below looks at the power of images online - how an image can create an impression and how often there is more than meets the eye in an image. How sometimes you can judge an image by seeing just a part of it and so the importance of taking in the whole, bigger, picture.

Safer Internet Day 2016

Play your part for a better internet:

This Safer Internet Day let’s make the internet a place of kindness and respect!

Be kind online: before you say what’s on your mind ask yourself is it kind?

Look out for your friends: if you see something mean online then report it, block the person and tell a parent or another trusted adult. 

Respect each other’s differences online: we're not all the same, and that's what makes us great! 

Play your part: help make the internet a kind place for everyone!
