Online Safety (upper Beading School)

The online world is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with endless opportunities for learning and creativity. However just like the real world, there are risks and dangers our children should be aware of and protected from.

As a school, UBPS encourages the use of technology as an important part of our childrens’ development, but always want them to spend their time online safely.

Please find below some parent and child links to websites promoting online safety. 

 

Please remember that children should be 13yrs old to hold or use social media accounts.

Teach the SMART Rules!

 

Safe: Staying safe online involves being careful and thinking about whether it is safe to give out personal information.

 

Meeting: Meeting up with someone you have contacted in cyberspace can be dangerous. Only do so with your adults permission and when they can be present.

 

Accepting: Accepting e-mails or opening files from people you don’t know can be dangerous – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.

 

Reliable: Anyone can put anything on the Internet - remember people can lie and not be who they say they are in chat rooms.

 

Tell: Tell your adult or teacher if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.
