Why is E-safety important?

The internet is an integral part of children's lives. It opens up many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.
Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.
As we would protect children in the real world, we want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Like learning to cross the road, online safety skills are skills for life. If children understand the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so.
 

What we are doing in school:

As we would protect our children in the real world, we want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Just like learning to cross the road, online safety skills are skills for life. If children understand the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, then they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so.

At Hallow, we teach the children to be S.M.A.R.T when using the internet.

SAFE - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information such as your name, email, phone number, home address, or school name to people who you don’t trust online.
MEETING - Meeting somebody you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then ONLY when they are present.
ACCEPTING - Accepting emails, instant messages or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems - they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
RELIABLE - Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable.
TELL - Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.

These are rules recommended by Childline International and the KIDSmart organisation.
