E-Safety Advice: Primary and Secondary Pupils Being sent an abusive or threatening text message or seeing nasty comments about yourself on a website can be really upsetting. Below are some important tips to protect yourself and your friends from getting caught up in cyber bullying and advice on how to report it if it does happen.


At a time when we have an increased use of online/virtual learning we feel that it is appropriate to share with you some online safety advice.

and the theme for this year is “Let’s create #AnInternetWeTrust”. Petersfield Campus will be adapting some of the lessons to raise awareness of online safety and aim to empower the pupils with information to make informed choices about keeping themselves safe online.


E-Safety Advice for Primary pupils:

The internet is the biggest library in the world. You can find almost anything you want to, from TV shows to sports results and homework help online. Carry on reading to get some important advice on how to be safe when searching online:

Be careful what you search for! Sometimes unwelcome pictures can get past your filters. Search carefully and responsibly – a nasty picture can be very difficult to forget! Get a parent or guardian to visit the thinkuknow website and install Hector Protector so that when you are searching online you always have a friend with you.

Simply click on Hector’s picture when you feel unsure of anything online and your screen will be filled with a fascinating underwater scene. Then go and talk to an adult and tell them that you were worried about something you came across online.

Remember! Hector is your friend!



E-Safety Advice for Secondary pupils:

Technology is a massive part of modern life and one that is useful in school and out. When used correctly technology gives us vast amounts of information and resources as well as fun and games. We encourage all pupils to use technology and to enjoy using it in a safe and productive manner. Carry on reading to get some important advice on how to be safe when working online:

  1. Use websites recommended by teachers and use a student friendly search engine when working online.
  2. Only email people you know and never open emails from people you do not know or who are not in your address book.
  3. Use Internet chat rooms, websites, instant messaging etc. with caution and make sure you know how to block and report unwanted users just in case you do experience a problem at any time.
  4. Never give out any personal information about yourself, your friends or your family online, including home address, phone or mobile number.
  5. Never arrange to meet anyone alone who you have not met previously face to face and always tell an adult first before you go off to meet an e-pal.
  6. Tell a responsible adult immediately if you encounter anything you are unhappy with.
