At Firs Primary we talk about staying safe online all the time. We do this in assemblies, through games and lots of different tasks we do in the classroom. We also spend time talking about acceptable behaviour in circle time or philosophy lessons (or part of PHSE). You regularly use the internet as part of your learning and we have regular activities and conversations to remind you about the importance of staying safe on the internet both in school and out of school.
As you know, if you have seen something online or someone's behaviour offends you or makes you upset or worried, you MUST tell someone you trust. As well as your parent/s, there are lots of trusted adults in school you could tell. Also remember that you or the adult can REPORT the behaviour. One way to do this in the link below. Most importantly, when online be SMART.
