The internet is wonderful! I sometimes wonder what we did without it! However, it can also be very concerning and children and adults need to learn how to stay safe online. We invited The Google Education Team into our school assembly today to learn very important lessons about staying safe online.

The children learned 5 important lessons:

Be internet sharp and think before you share. Know what’s okay to share and what’s not.

Be internet alert and check it’s for real. Spot the clues for what’s real, fake or a scam online.

Be internet secure and protect your stuff. Learn how to create strong passwords.

Be internet kind and respect each other. Understand what it means to be kind online and respect other people’s privacy.

Be internet brave and when in doubt, discuss. Ask for help from a parent or trusted adult with tricky situations online.

 

At East Boldon Juniors we want our children to love using the internet safely! At the end of today’s session, the children pledged to stay safe online by following the five rules above.
