Internet safety

• Never tell anyone you meet on the Internet your home address or your telephone number.
• Never tell anyone you meet on the Internet your school’s name or phone number, unless your teacher specifically gives you permission.
• Never send anyone your picture, credit card or bank details.
• Never give your password to anyone – even a best friend.
• Never arrange by email to meet anyone you don’t know in person.
• Never respond to nasty, suggestive or rude emails.
• Always tell a member of staff in charge if you see bad language or distasteful pictures while you are online.
• Always be yourself and do not pretend to be anyone or anything you are not.
• Always remember if someone makes you an offer that seems too good to be true, it probably is.
• Always delete attachments from strangers without opening them; they may contain viruses that can damage your machine.
• Never open an email if you are suspicious of its source or content – and report these to a member of staff.
• Never click on links in emails unless you are certain they are safe (hover over the link to see what it really connects to)
