e-Safety - children's page

At school, we talk about the importance of keeping safe online - you should always apply your SMART knowledge at school AND at home, so you can enjoy online activities safely and appropriately.



There are lots of fun and interesting things you can do on the internet. And it can be a great way to stay in touch with friends. But it’s important to understand how to stay safe online.

Sometimes people will try to trick you into clicking dangerous links or sharing things about yourself. Or something you’ve shared might be used to bully or frighten you.

5 ways to get support if things go wrong

  1. Talk to someone you trust like an adult, or you can always talk to a Childline counsellor
  2. Report bullying and abuse directly to the website or app
  3. Delete things you’ve shared that you’re worried about or find ways to hide them
  4. Tell the police by making a report to CEOP if someone is threatening or blackmailing you
  5. Plan for the future and change your privacy settings so it doesn’t happen again

Check out the CHILDLINE - STAYING SAFE ONLINE PAGE for more advice and guidance


Be a safe and savvy internet user!

  • The TV asks if I’m still watching

There are lots of other signs too – everyone will have their own. What signs do you get when you’ve been online too long?
