Online Safety

Computing in the 21st Century is seen as an essential area of learning. It plays an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. For parents and carers the internet has opened a whole new world dangers and opportunities. The internet is forever changing and so are the latest online trends. At Hiltingbury Junior School, we teach children how to be safe online at an age-appropriate  level, to each year group each year. 

 

Rules for Responsible Use of Online Technology.

  • I will take care when using the school IT equipment and use it responsibly.
  • I will only use websites which are trusted and which an adult has told me to go on.
  • I will always talk to a trusted adult if I have seen something online which has made me uncomfortable.
  • I am responsible for the security and use of my usernames and passwords within school.
  • I will never give out my personal information or home address- privacy is a priority.
  • I will only talk to people who I know in real life and not make friends with strangers.
  • I will not use technology to be unkind to people.
  • I will immediately close any website that I am not sure about and tell a trusted adult.
  • I will not arrange to meet anyone that I have met online.
