Online Safety

Children at Argyle use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and we at Argyle want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.

In school, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We also have regular 'e-safety' sessions to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. At school we use a set of SMART rules to teach our children how to stay safe online.

S -  Safe - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you are online, such as your email address, phone number and password.

M -  Meeting - Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous.  Do so only with your parents' or carers' permission. If you do plan to meet someone,  take a parent or carer with you.

A -   Accepting - Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from  people you don't know or trust can lead to problems - they could contain nasty messages or viruses!

R -   Reliable - Someone online might lie about who they are or give you false  information. Information on the internet may not be true. Always check   information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you want to chat  online, chat with your family and real world friends.

T -   Tell - Tell your parent, carer or trusted adult if someone or something makes you  uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
