Safety on the Internet is important. The following will help remind you how to stay safe and what to do if there is a problem.

  • Make sure your social networking profile is private. You can accept your friends but there is no need for other people to see your profile or any of your information.
  • Never accept people you do not know. Be aware that not everyone on the internet is who they say they are.
  • If you feel that someone is behaving inappropriately towards you through the internet then report this to an adult you can trust.

Dealing with Cyberbullying

  • Cyberbullying can happen through a mobile phone, instant messaging or social networking sites.
  • If you feel you are being bullied it is a good idea to save any text messages, instant messaging conversations or messages that have been sent to you through social networking sites.
  • In school you can speak to your tutor, a teacher, Year Head, Susan Woolfenden or Mrs Panesar.
  • The sooner you report it the sooner it can be dealt with
