E-Safety Advice for parents and pupils

Keep your children safe when using electronic devices by following the advice provided on the links below. At Baildon, we teach a thorough and engaging curriculum regarding e-safety risks. This is based around Childline’s SMART rules.

  • Safe: Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you're chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.
  • Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents or carers permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
  • Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
  • Reliable: Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.
  • Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
