During lockdown, children were understandably using the internet even more to learn, stay in touch with friends and play. Therefore our 'in-school' curriculum has been adapted to provide even more information about how to stay safe online - and what to do if something seems to have gone wrong.
Remember - ALWAYS be careful when you are using the internet. Things might not be what they seem and people might not be who they say they are. The internet is an incredible thing and can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:
· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
