Internet Safety

Welcome to our Internet Safety page for children. 

At Starbeck School we believe that e-safety is very important. At school you will learn about various ways of keeping safe on-line through assemblies, ICT/Computing lessons, PSHE lessons, Police visits, trips to 'Crucial Crew' and in various other ways. 

Some key rules to follow our the SMART rules developed by Childnet International 

Safe:

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.

Meet: 

Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.

Accepting: 

Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!

Reliable: 

Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.

Tell: 

Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.

We have created three sub-pages containing some useful links for children to use to gain information about e-safety.
