These SMART guidelines are explained to any children wishing to access the internet in school:

  • Safe:Keep safe by not giving out personal information – such as name, email, phone number, address, or school name – to people who you don’t trust online.
  • Meeting: Never agree to meet anyone you have only met online unless your parent or carer is with you.
  • Accepting: Do not accept emails or instant messages, or open files, images or texts from people you don’t know. They can contain viruses or nasty messages.
  • Reliable: Not all the information found on the Internet is reliable and people you meet online won’t always be telling the truth.
  • Tell: Tell a member of staff or your parents if someone or something you encounter online makes you feel uncomfortable.

Please take a look at this useful website for some advice and ideas on how to keep your children safe online.
