E-Safety

We believe at Twin Sails that it is hugely important for children growing up in today's digital world to know and understand how to use the internet safely. We have therefore taken positive steps in our learning to ensure that risks are minimalized by educating and empowering our children to use the Internet with care.

 

Our school E-safety champions are Miss Atwill and Mr Rogers.

They work hard to help keep everyone safe on-line by leading regular assemblies, organising E-safety days and ensuring all children know the 'Internet Awesome' rules. 

 

Be Internet Awesome!

                               

Pause & Think Online - Our School E-Safety Song

As a school we have regular 'Be Internet Awesome' assemblies to remind the children of our school charter. We address each of the points individually and make the assemblies fun and engaging.

During our weekly computing sessions we have the opportunity to talk through our charter in more detail and discuss ways to keep ourselves safe online.

Be Smart

'Share with care.'

 

Personal Information

 

Personal information is information that belongs only to you and you shouldn’t share this online. Examples of personal information include:

 

  • Your real name
  • Where you live
  • Your age
  • Where you go to school and any clubs you go to
  • Your phone number
  • Your username and password
  • Pictures of yourself, your family and friends

 

Remember to ask a grown-up if you are unsure of what to do online.

 

Be Alert

'Don't fall for fake.'

 

Miss Atwill and Mr Rogers played a clip of a little girl playing a Banana game.

Suddenly a pop up came up saying, 'CLICK HERE TO WIN A TEDDY BEAR'

 

Should she click it?...

 

We paused it to ask the children what the little girl should do next...

Be Kind

'It's cool to be kind.'

 

If you are chatting to people by sending messages or on video when you are online, only chat to people who you know and trust in real-life like family and friends. 

It is easy for people to pretend when they are online. They might not always be who they say they are, or say what they really mean.

Remember:

  • If someone says something that makes you feel worried, scared or sad, tell an adult you trust.
  • If someone you don’t know tries to chat to you online, tell an adult you trust.
  • Sometimes people online can be unkind. If someone says something mean online or makes you feel sad, tell a grown up you trust.
  • If someone says something which makes you feel worried, scared or sad, remember you don’t have to reply. Not replying and switching off  your phone, tablet or game can help you feel better.

Be Brave

'Ask for help.'

 

We have been talking about what to do when we are unsure or see something that we don't like on the internet.
