Online Safety (e-safety)
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Following the SMART rules will help keep you safe.
Click the poster to see the SMART rules full size.
Safe - do I feel safe online?
Meeting - should I meet someone that I don't know in the real world?
Accepting - be careful what you click on!
Reliable - can you be sure what you read on the internet is true?
Tell - if something online makes you feel uncomfortable then tell an adult.
- always be kind and respectful to others online.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online. Please don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
