E-Safety Tip of the Week

New friends can be exciting but before you really get to know them, it is important to still keep your private information safe. Remember, it’s difficult to always be sure that people online are who they say they are. When you first meet people online, it’s always good to be careful.

E-safety Tip of the Week

If you have a phone or computer of your own you should lock them when you are not using them. If you leave them unlocked anyone can see your private messages, photos, phone numbers, texts and other stuff you like. They could delete or steal information or just play tricks on you! It only takes a second to lock them and then you know you're safe.

E-Safety Tip of The Week

Sometimes a window will pop up on your computer saying that you have a virus and you need to run a scan to get rid of it. This is Scareware. It tries to trick you by saying this so you click and download something. They will probably ask for money too. It looks real and professional but inside it could be dangerous.

This term we are going to carry on with our weekly E-Safety tips for you.

E-Safety Tip of The Week 

Social media is a useful tool but there are age restrictions for very good reasons. Facebook rules state that you should be 13 or more to have an account with them. The law doesn’t allow them to have under 13s on their site. If Facebook know that you are under age they will close your account.

8th December

E-Safety Tip of the Week

Make your passwords really hard to guess. A hard to guess password will keep you even safer, so don’t use obvious things like you dog’s name or your Mum’s name. Try something that is about the site. If it’s a football site, you might use “itsmyball” and to make it even harder you could change some of the letters to numbers – “1tsmyb4ll”. It’s easy to do but hard to guess!

E-Safety Tips

For the rest of this term we will be including an e-safety tip in this newsletter each week. The Internet is amazing but just like the real world, not everyone has our best interests at heart, so we will be helping you and your children to stay safe by sharing tips.

Tip 1 - Don’t be tricked into giving away personal details. When you answer emails, texts or phone calls make sure you keep who you are & where you live a secret, unless you really know the person well. People might use information you give them to pretend to be you.

School IT equipment for use by children have visual cue cards to support children in using the internet safely.

 

We are mindful that many parents ask us in school about keeping children safe online. With this in mind, we will be hosting a series of e-safety briefings for parents in school.  If you have any concerns regarding E-Safety, please do not hesitate to contact us.
