If you have any Safeguarding concerns please click this Reporting Concerns document.
There are four simple tips that we should share with children, no matter what their age, in order to help them keep themselves safe on the internet:
- Always remember that people you don’t know are strangers – they may not be who they say they are
- Keep personal information private – don’t give away your secrets
- Always be nice online – block and report people who are mean
- Always tell an adult if you are worried or scared
- Never tell anyone your password. Always treat your password like your toothbrush – you’d never share it with your friends!

NSPCC’s Share Aware campaign
The NSPCC have launched a campaign called ‘Share Aware’. The campaign is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 8-12 – the age at which they start doing more online, become more independent and use a greater range of devices. The campaign aims to encourage parents and carers to understand online safety and to have conversations with their children about keeping safe.
