Internet Safety

BE SMART

  S

Secret and Safe - Always keep your name, address, phone numbers and passwords secret.  If you have to use an online name, make one up.

  M

Meet - Don’t ever arrange to meet up with someone you have met online – it could be dangerous.  If you do, make sure you have a parent or carer with you.

  A

Accepting - No matter how tempted you may be, never open emails from people you don’t know.  Junk emails (spam) may contain nasty messages or viruses which could mess up your computer.

  R

Remember - Chatting and meeting people online can be fun, but always remember that people might not be who they say they are.  Never give out personal information, stick to the public areas of chat rooms and, if you ever feel uncomfortable, GET OUT.

  T

Tell - If anything that happens online makes you feel uncomfortable or worried – always tell a parent or carer about it.

The internet is part of everyday life for most of us whether at school, work or home.  At Glyn we educate students to be aware of its dangers and to use caution where necessary. 

We encourage students to ALWAYS tell an adult if they see something on the internet that concerns them, or if they are approached by someone they do not know by email or on a social networking site.

If you have any concerns and want to tell an adult about it email

HELP@glynschool.org

If you are being bullied online or know of someone who is and want to tell an adult about it email

HELP@glynschool.org

If you feel that someone has acted inappropriately online towards you or a young person you know you can report it by clicking on the CEOP button.
