It’s important to be safe online whether you are inside or outside of school. As a school we have developed the following 3 Online Safety Golden Rules. Each of these rules has a few more specific sub-rules which we expect our KS2 children to be able to understand.
Treat personal information like your toothbrush (keep it to yourself)!
I will not tell other people my password
I will not talk to people online if I do not know them
I will not share my personal information with people I do not know
I will not put pictures or videos of other people online if they do not want me to
Tell an adult if you are unsure (on computers, tablets or phones)
I will not open messages if I do not know who it is from
I will not open or download any strange pop ups
If I see something that upsets me, I will tell an adult
Think carefully about your actions (towards others and equipment)
I will not be silly or mess around with the computers or iPads as I could break them
I will not deliberately save or send anything that is nasty
I will ask an adult if I can go on a computer and only use the activity that they have told me to use
If I do not follow these rules, I may not be allowed to use electronic devices.
