Stay safe on the Internet
When you are using the internet at school or at home it is very important that you stay safe.
You have been taught at school how to stay safe when using the internet on a computer, an Ipad or a mobile phone. It is also a good idea to talk to an adult at home and they will be able to help you!
SAFE - Don't give out your own information
MEET - Only meet people you have met online with your parents
ACCEPTING - Only open emails & texts from people you trust
