Online safety is the responsibility of both school and parents. Our aim here is to provide information on work we will complete in school

What do I need to know about online gaming?

  1. Gaming is a fun and sociable way to spend time, encouraging teamwork and developing skills. All good stuff, but there are a few things you need to be aware of:
  2. Get involved by finding out what type of games your child enjoys and making sure they’re appropriate for their age
  3. Some games let children play and chat with anyone in the world. This means they might come across offensive language and bullying
  4. Everyone online is who they say they are. Children should avoid giving out personal details that could identify them or their location
  5. Some games encourage players to buy extra elements during the game – children have been known to run up large bills without realising
  6. In extreme cases bullying, also known as ‘griefing’, can be used as a tactic to win games. Children may find themselves either bullying or being bullied.

Mobile phones for children

As they get older, most children will probably ask for their own mobile or smartphone, and you’ll want to be able to contact them when they spend more time away from home.

Smartphones offer children the ability to be connected to the internet wherever they are, so you need to carefully consider if and when they’re ready to go mobile and what you’re happy for them to be able to do online.

 10 Top tips

  1. Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
  2. Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
  3. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible.
  4. Never give out your passwords.
  5. Don’t befriend people you don’t know.
  6. Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to a parent or carer about people suggesting you do.
  7. Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.
  8. Think carefully about what you say before you post something online.
  9. Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude.
  10. If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

When should I report to CEOP?

Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP below.
