Internet Safety


In the ever changing world we live in, technology is expanding and being used in many different and exciting ways, helping us expand our horizons.

With new technology being released all the time, we are open to a vast amount of information and we are also able to communicate with a whole world of new and exciting people. Whilst this is extremely exciting, we need to be sure to keep ourselves and our family safe online.

The Think U Know website is a great place for children and parents to find out more about keeping safe online.


We hear more and more about cyberbullying in the news all the time. The internet and smartphones have changed the way kids can be bullied. In this Newsround Special Ricky investigates cyberbullying. He speaks to those affected by it, and those who have overcome.

When using any computer, tablet or phone device remember SMART:

S- SAFE- Don't give out your own informationM- MEET- Only meet people you have met online with your parents

A- ACCEPTING- Only open emails & texts from people you trust

R- RELIABLE- Some people online tell lies, only talk to real world friends and family

T- TELL- Tell a parent or adult you trust if something you see online makes you feel uncomfortable
