    E-Safety Advice

     The internet can be a fantastic resource but it can also be a dangerous place if you don’t keep yourself safe and secure online. It is important to remember that not everyone you may meet on the internet will be who they say they are. So think very carefully about how you use the internet. Never give out your passwords or any private information for example. You must certainly never agree to meet anyone you’ve met online - always speak to your parents if you are asked to do so.

    The internet is also a place where bullying can easily occur. 
    You need to think very carefully about any of the pictures or videos that you post of yourself. This includes items that you may send via text message. If you every receive any kind of abuse online you must tell someone about it, your parents, a family member, a teacher or a friend for example.

    When should you report to CEOP?

    CEOP help children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP below.

    The following website will give you some really good advice on how to stay safe online:
