Why is E-safety important?
What we are doing in school:
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.
