Online Safety

Here at Gorsemoor we teach you about Online Safety using the Education for a Connected World framework. We ensure you gain the relevant knowledge and skills to stay safe in a digital world by learning about online safety at every opportunity. This will help you be safe in a digital world.

 

 

  • Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
  • Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
  • Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

The 5 A Day advice is:

 

  1. Connect: Message, have fun and play with friends and family both online and offline.
  2. Be active: Take some time off and get active - movement helps boost emotional wellbeing.
  3. Get creative: Don’t just browse the internet but use digital tools to create content, to build new skills and discover new passions.
  4. Give to others: Be positive online, report bad content and help others to balance their own 5-a-day.
  5. Be mindful: If time online is causing stress or tiredness then take some time off and ask for help when you need it.

Tips for staying safe online:

 

· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.

 

· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
