Keep safe (online)
Technology is great. Here's some wonderful work by children at Huntingtree in their computing lessons.
Technology at home
Using devices at home can keep you entertained and helps you to keep in touch with friends. However, it is important to look after your health and wellbeing too.
Three top tips:
1. Use technology to help you with your home learning
2. Try to limit how long you spend on your devices
3. If you find content online that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, then tell a trusted adult
At home or school, follow the HUNTSAFE rules to stay safe online...
- How you treat others, should be the same as how you would want to be treated
- Understand that the Internet is an amazing place when used in a safe way
- Never meet up with someone you have never met before in real life
- The messages you send should be friendly and use kind words
- Shut the laptop lid or turn off the monitor if you see something you don't like online, then tell an adult immediately
- Avatars are better to use online than personal photographs of you
- Friend requests should only be accepted from people you know
- Everyone's personal information is private. Don't share yours online
