E-Safety

Protect yourself on the Internet: remember the GOLDen rules.

Ground rules

  • Keep information private – think, would I tell this to a stranger?
  • Agree rules about meeting online ‘friends’ in real life
  • If it’s not acceptable in real life it shouldn’t be acceptable online

Online safety

  • Use anti-virus and monitoring systems
  • Know where to get advice – see below
  • Activate security and privacy settings

Location

  • Internet access should be in a family room, rather than a bedroom
  • Know that Internet access can be gained by the use of other devices; such as gaming consoles, mobile phones or the neighbour’s wireless internet connection

Dialogue

  • Talk to your parents about your internet use
  • Talk to your parents if you have a problem or feel uncomfortable

Keeping Safe is Simple on Social Networking Sites

  • Always keep your profile private
  • Never accept friends you don’t know in the real world
  • Never post anything which could reveal your identity
  • Never agree to meet somebody you only know online without telling a trusted adult
  • Always tell someone if you feel threatened or someone makes improper suggestions

All young users of Facebook – and their parents – are invited to add the ClickCEOP ‘app’ to their profile. Through this app, they will be able to access advice, help and support from the CEOP Centre. Crucially, young people will be able to report instances of suspected grooming or inappropriate sexual behaviour directly from their profile to specially trained investigators.

The ‘app’ is the outcome of collaboration between CEOP and Facebook who have combined Facebook’s expertise in connecting and communicating online with CEOP’s expertise in helping young people stay safe.

Once added to their profiles, young users will receive regular messages from CEOP and its partner organisations who operate ‘behind the button’ to make children safer. CEOP’s Facebook pagewill also contain polls, news alerts and status updates. The page will look at topics that teenagers care about, such as celebrities, music and exams and will link these subjects to questions about online safety.

Users can either add or bookmark the ‘app’ so it appears on their profile. To install the 'app' sign in to Facebook, then click the 'ClickCEOP' button on the ClickCEOP page.

The strengthening of care and support has had a positive impact on most pupils. It was clearly visible when inspectors met pupils during the inspection. They demonstrated confidence as learners, and typically enjoyed positive interactions with one another and adults.
