Staying Safe Online
We promote thinking SMART when children are using computers at school and at home.
|S||Stay Safe: Don't give out personal information to people and places you do not know.|
|M||Don’t Meet Up: Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Always check with an adult you trust.|
|A||Accepting Files: Accepting emails, files, pictures or text from people you don't know can cause problems.|
|R||Reliable? Check information before you believe it. Is the person or website telling the truth?|
|T||Tell Someone: Tell an adult if someone or something makes you feel worried or uncomfortable.|
Follow these smart tips to keep yourself safe online.
