Online Safety

Our New Online Safety Newsletter has just been published. Click on the image to see what is happening at St. Alban’s to help keep all of our children both safe and informed.

At St. Alban’s, we teach children how to be ‘SMART’ online.

S = Be Safe – Keep your personal information safe and secret. Think carefully before you share a photo of yourself or your friends.

M = Don’t Meet Up – Never arrange to meet an online friend because it can be dangerous. No matter how well you think you know people, they might be pretending.

A = Accepting E-Mails Can Be Dangerous – If you receive junk mail (called spam) or messages which make you feel uncomfortable, tell an adult that you trust and delete them. Don’t reply to them!

R = Reliable? – The Internet is full of friendly people and amazing information. However, sometimes people might say or write things which are untrue, so you should always think carefully before trusting what you see or hear.

T = Tell Someone! – Most of the time that you are online; you will have lots of fun. However, if you see something that makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, make sure that you tell an adult who you trust.
